Petrofac wins contract for BP’s Tortue FLNG project

Energy services firm Petrofac said it has won a contract from BP for the latter’s Greater Tortue Ahmeyim FLNG project in Mauritania and Senegal.

Under the deal, Petrofac would develop operational procedures in order to minimise risk and harm to personnel, plant and the environment, the firm said in a statement.

The procedures will encompass all offshore operations, including subsea, floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) and hub.

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.

The integrated gas value chain and near-shore liquefied natural gas development will export LNG to global markets as well as supply gas to Senegal and Mauritania.

The first phase of the Greater Tortue Ahmeyim FLNG development is around 58 percent complete, project partner Kosmos Energy said this week.

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

Singapore’s Keppel shipyard is currently converting Golar’s Gimi FLNG for the project. To remind, BP and Golar agreed a one-year delay for the unit last year due to the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic.

The yard should deliver the FLNG in 2023 as the partners expect first gas from the project in the first half of the same year.

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