Energy services firm Petrofac has secured another contract from BP for the latter’s Greater Tortue Ahmeyim FLNG project in Mauritania and Senegal.
This new contract follows an award in May 2021 for operational procedures for the same development.
Petrofac said in statement on Wednesday the scope of work includes the provision of specialist personnel, plant as well as equipment.
The firm will support offshore operations at the floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) hub in Mauritania and Senegal.
Petrofac said it won the contract following competitive tender, but it did not provide the price tag of the deal.
The Tortue/Ahmeyim gas field, with estimated resources of 15 trillion cubic feet of gas, is located offshore on the border between Mauritania and Senegal.
It will feed Golar LNG’s 2.5 mtpa Gimi FLNG that should start serving BP’s Greater Tortue Ahmeyim project under a 20-year deal next year.
Singapore’s Keppel shipyard is converting Gimi to a floating LNG producer. According to Golar, the project was about 82 percent technically complete as of April 14.
In addition, Technip Energies is in charge for the FPSO construction at COSCO Shipping’s Qidong yard in China.
Project partner Kosmos Energy recently said that the entire project had reached the 75 percent completion mark at the end of the first quarter.
