Italian oil firm Eni will finish its anticipated final investment decision on a Coral LNG project, offshore Mozambique this week, Reuters reported.

According to LNG World News, The project involves the construction of 6 subsea wells connected to a floating LNG production facility, with a liquefaction capacity of over 3.3m tons of LNG per year.

In February 2016, Mozambique government approved the development of the gas field which was discovered in 2012 and located within Area 4, holding 450bcm of gas in place.
