Oil major BP has awarded KBR’s UK operating subsidiary the Engineering, Procurement and Construction Management (EPCM) contract to provide Facilities Integration and Terminal Quarters and Utilities (QU) Management for the Hub/Terminal of BP’s Greater Tortue Ahmeyim Project, located at the maritime border of Senegal and Mauritania.
KBR in October last year won a Front End Engineering Design (FEED) contract for Phase 1 of the Tortue field Hub/Terminal development.
Come April 2019 and KBR was also awarded the Pre-FEED Services contract for Phases 2 and 3 of BP’s Greater Tortue Ahmeyim project. The Phases 2 and 3 entail the further development of Tortue field beyond Phase 1 of the development located in the C-8 block off the shore of Mauritania
Announcing the new contract with BP on Thursday, KBR said it would manage the Hub/Terminal QU contractor, provide services for the QU Integrated Control, Safety System ICSS, Telecoms Systems and Supplemental Services – system engineering, support and verification – for the marine and civil elements of Hub/Terminal.
“KBR is delighted to continue supporting BP during the execution of the integration and QU for Phase 1 of the Tortue Ahmeyim Project,” said Jay Ibrahim, KBR President, Energy Solutions – Services.
“We are proud to be part of this groundbreaking project which will deliver LNG revenues and gas to Africa for decades to come.”
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 a nearshore hub.
In related news, Baker Hughes, a GE company, has recently been awarded a contract to supply turbomachinery equipment for the first phase of BP’s Greater Tortue Ahmeyim project.
