Overland Park-headquartered EPCC specialist Black & Veatch has been given a limited notice to proceed with work on the FLNG conversion for the BP-led Greater Tortue Ahmeyim LNG project off Mauritania and Senegal. 

In its statement, the company said it will start work on jointly outfitting a Golar LNG-owned liquefied natural gas carrier, Gimi, with its liquefaction technology.

The vessel conversion would take place at Singapore’s Keppel Shipyard building on Keppel’s delivery of the FLNG Hilli Episeyo, utilizing Black and Veatch’s PRICO technology.

The FLNG vessel would support the development of Phase 1 of the Greater Tortue / Ahmeyim field, located offshore Mauritania and Senegal.

Earlier last week, BP and its partners reached a final investment decision for Phase 1 of the Greater Tortue Ahmeyim LNG project off Mauritania and Senegal.

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 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.

Project execution activities are expected to commence in the first quarter of 2019, with first gas expected in 2022.

BP Gas Marketing has been selected as the sole buyer for the investor partners’ LNG offtake for Tortue Phase 1.
