Wison cuts first steel for Eni’s Congo LNG topsides

Chinese yard Wison Heavy Industry has cut first steel for the topsides of the floating liquefied natural gas vessel destined for Italian major Eni’s Cong LNG project offshore Congo-Brazzaville.

The first steel cut, witnessed by Congo-Brazzaville Hydrocarbons Minister Bruno Jean-Richard Itoua at Wison’s facility in Zhoushan, in eastern China’s Zhejiang province, follows the start of construction work on the FLNG vessel’s hull at Wison’s Nantong facility in January.
