BP Taps KBR for Greater Tortue

May 9, 2019

Engineering house KBR has been awarded a contract to support BP's Greater Tortue Ahmeyim Project, off Senegal and Mauritania

The work is an engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) contract to provide facilities integration and terminal quarters and utilities (QU) management for the Greater Tortue Ahmeyim hub/terminal.  

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.

"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 and remove 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. The project, the first major gas development to reach final investment decision in the basin, is planned to provide LNG for global export as well as  making gas available for domestic use in both Mauritania and Senegal.

The initial subsea infrastructure at the project will connect the first four of 12 wells consolidated through production pipelines leading to the FPSO. From the FPSO, liquids will be removed and the export gas transported via a pipeline to a FLNG hub terminal where the gas will be liquefied.
