KBR said that its UK operating unit has been awarded an additional contract for BP’s Greater Tortue Ahmeyim project, located at the maritime border of Senegal and Mauritania.
KBR has been awarded the engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) contract to provide facilities integration and terminal quarters and utilities (QU) management for the hub/terminal of the project.
KBR will 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.
The contract adds to the pre-FEED services deal for phases 2 and 3 of BP’s Greater Tortue Ahmeyim project the company won in April.
The Greater Tortue Ahmeyim project located at the maritime border of Senegal and Mauritania has been sanctioned by BP and its partner Kosmos Energy in December last year.
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.
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, 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.
