BP selects KBR for Pre-FEED of next phases of Tortue Ahmeyim project
Oil and gas major BP has awarded KBR the Pre-FEED Services contract for Phases 2 and 3 of BP’s Greater Tortue Ahmeyim project, offshore Senegal and Mauritania.
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 and the Saint-Louis Profond block offshore Senegal.
KBR said that the two phases of the Greater Tortue Ahmeyim project would significantly expand capacity to deliver additional gas from an ultra-deep-water subsea system, tied back to mid-water gas processing platforms. The gas will then be transferred to pre-treatment and offshore LNG facilities located at the established Phase 1 hub.
“We are proud to be part of this groundbreaking project which will deliver LNG revenues and gas to Africa for decades to come,” said Jay Ibrahim, KBR President, Energy Solutions – Services. “This win demonstrates KBR’s strategic commitment to our partner BP to deliver an innovative and cost-effective deepwater gas value chain together.”
The initial subsea infrastructure, part of the first phase, connects the first four wells consolidated through production pipelines leading to this FPSO. From here liquids are removed and the export gas is transported via a pipeline to the LNG hub terminal where the gas is liquefied.
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.
