CH2M bagged a marine engineering support contract for BP’s Tortue development offshore Mauritania and Senegal.
The project being developed by BP and Kosmos Energy involves subsea gas production, a floating gas treatment facility, a pipeline with domestic gas connection points and a nearshore natural gas liquefaction and export facility, creating a new African LNG hub.
The hub facility provides breakwater-protected berths for a floating LNG production unit and for international export of LNG by ship.
CH2M’s 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.
Civil and marine engineering support for the Tortue are being delivered in the UK by CH2M’s international terminal, pipeline and infrastructure engineering team.
