Kosmos: BP’s Tortue FLNG project 75 percent complete

BP’s Greater Tortue Ahmeyim FLNG project located offshore Mauritania and Senegal has reached a 75 percent completion mark at the end of the first quarter, project partner Kosmos Energy said on Monday.

Texas-based Kosmos said in its quarterly results report that the first phase of the Greater Tortue Ahmeyim LNG project has reached several milestones during the January-March period.

The project includes the conversion of Golar LNG’s Gimi to a floating LNG producer at Singapore’s Keppel shipyard and the construction of the FPSO by Technip Energies at COSCO Shipping’s Qidong yard in China.

Kosmos said in the update that Keppel had commenced pipe rack outfitting and equipment installation and testing.

The 2.5 mtpa Gimi FLNG should start serving BP’s Greater Tortue Ahmeyim project under a 20-year deal next year.

Golar said last month that the conversion was about 82 percent technically complete as of April 14.

As per the FPSO, Kosmos said work on the FPSO in the shipyard continues with mechanical completion activities and inspection tests.

Besides the works at the two yards, construction work continues to progress offshore Mauritania and Senegal.

Earlier this year, France’s Eiffage Genie Civil said it had completed the construction of 21 mega caissons at its Dakar site in Senegal.

The caissons will constitute the breakwater that will protect the project’s FLNG and LNG carriers offshore the coast of Saint-Louis.

Kosmos said that the yard has shipped the 21st and final caisson shipped offshore in early March 2022. There are three caissons left to be installed at the hub terminal.

In addition, Kosmos expects the subsea construction campaign to start in May, while drilling has commenced with top holes completed on two of the four wells required for first gas.
