Offshore engineering firm TechnipFMC has been awarded a major contract by BP for the engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning (EPCIC) of the floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) unit to be deployed offshore on the maritime border of Mauritania and Senegal.
The contract, valued between $500m and $1bn, is a continuation to a FEED contract TechnipFMC secured from BP in April last year.
The initial subsea infrastructure connects the first four wells consolidated through production pipelines leading to the FPSO. From there liquids are removed and the export gas is transported via a pipeline to the LNG hub terminal where the gas is liquefied.
“We are honored to be entrusted with the execution of this prestigious contract in West Africa which is a testimonial to our long-term partnership with BP and our leadership in the Gas Monetization industry. This award is one of our strategic early engagement achievements, following the successful completion by TechnipFMC of the FEED study. We look forward to collaborating with BP to unlock the full potential of this important project.” said Nello Uccelletti, president of TechnipFMC’s onshore/offshore business.
