Edda wins accommodation job for Tortue FLNG project

Norway’s Edda Accommodation has won a new accommodation contract from Italy’s Saipem for the Tortue Ahmeyim FLNG development located offshore Mauritania and Senegal.

Under the deal, Østensjø Rederi’s Edda would charter the 2011-built offshore accommodation and service vessel Edda Fides for the BP-led FLNG project for a period of 6 months, including options.

Edda said the 130 meters long vessel would start serving Saipem offshore Mauritania and Senegal in the second quarter of 2022, but it did not provide any additional information regarding the contract.

With this, the 130 meters long vessel is fully booked for 2022.

Currently on charter with Equinor, Edda Fides will first provide accommodation service for up to 600 people and associated facilities for Chevron Australia before commencing work for Saipem.

As LNG Prime previously reported, Chevron will charter the vessel for its Wheatstone LNG development offshore Western Australia.

The Tortue/Ahmeyim gas field, located offshore on the border between Mauritania and Senegal, has about 15 trillion cubic feet of gas, according to BP.

The project’s FPSO will process the gas, removing heavier hydrocarbon components, prior to delivering it to a floating LNG provider which will sit nearshore a hub.

Besides operator BP and Kosmos Energy, the project includes national oil companies Petrosen and SMHPM.

Furthermore, Singapore’s Keppel shipyard is currently converting Golar’s Gimi FLNG for the project. The yard should deliver the FLNG in 2023.

Once deployed offshore Mauritania and Senegal, it will provide about 2.5 million tonnes of LNG per annum on average.
