Black & Veatch, Keppel to work on conversion of FLNG for BP’s Tortue project

U.S.-based Black & Veatch, a provider of floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) solutions, and Singapore’s Keppel will work together to convert a Golar LNG-owned LNG carrier into an FLNG unit for BP’s Greater Tortue Ahmeyim development.

Golar LNG received a limited notice to proceed from BP related to the provision of an FLNG unit for its Greater Tortue Ahmeyim field development located offshore Mauritania and Senegal on Monday, December 17.

Goalr said that the vessel conversion would take place at Keppel Shipyard, utilizing Black and Veatch Corporation’s PRICO technology.

Last Friday, December 21 Black & Veatch said it had also received a limited notice to proceed on work to jointly outfit a Golar LNG-owned LNG carrier, Gimi, with its patented PRICO liquefaction technology for the Greater Tortue Ahmeyim development.

Also on Friday, BP made the Final Investment Decision (FID) for Phase 1 of the cross-border Greater Tortue Ahmeyim development.

The Greater Tortue Ahmeyim project will produce gas from an ultra-deepwater subsea system and mid-water floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel, which will process the gas, removing heavier hydrocarbon components. The gas will then be transferred to a floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility at an innovative nearshore hub located on the Mauritania and Senegal maritime border.

The FLNG facility is designed to provide circa 2.5 million tonnes of LNG per annum on average, with the total gas resources in the field estimated to be around 15 trillion cubic feet.

Black & Veatch sad that the Gimi project would build on the successes of the Golar FLNG Hilli Episeyo which was completed earlier in the year and has been in commercial operation offshore Cameroon since.

“Preparing the Gimi for production will mark another major proof point that FLNG can meet the world’s rising demand for energy,” said Bob Germinder, Black & Veatch Senior Vice President and Managing Director of Floating Oil & Gas Solutions.”
