CH2M wins engineering support work on BP’s Tortue field

Engineering company CH2M has been awarded a new marine engineering support contract on BP’s Tortue development offshore Mauritania and Senegal.

The development project involves subsea gas production, a floating gas treatment facility, a pipeline with domestic gas connection points and a nearshore hub facility where the gas is converted into a liquefied natural gas (LNG).

CH2M said on Thursday that the hub facility provided breakwater-protected berths for a floating LNG production unit and international export of LNG by ship.

The preliminary front-end engineering design (pre-FEED) deliverables support final decision-making on the hub location, layout, and the form and method of construction of the inshore hub and support to marine operations and project execution planning.

BP named KBR as an engineering services contractor for the Tortue development, and KBR selected CH2M as the BP-approved civil and marine engineering support provider.

Colin Skipper, CH2M vice president and practice director, said: “[…] we are pleased to perform a critical role working with KBR on this technically challenging project for BP. Delivering this project requires deep technical experience and innovative thinking–qualities on which our reputation has been built.”

It is also worth mentioning that Kosmos Energy, BP’s partner in Mauritania and Senegal, proved that Tortue was a “world class” resource after completing a drill stem test (DST) of the Tortue-1 well in late August using the Atwood Achiever drillship.

The well flowed at a sustained, equipment-constrained rate of approximately 60 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d) during the main, extended flow period, with minimal pressure drawdown, providing confidence in well designs that are each capable of producing approximately 200 MMcf/d.
