TechnipFMC has been awarded a front-end engineering design (FEED) contract by BP for the FPSO unit for the Tortue/Ahmeyim Field Development, an LNG project located offshore Mauritania and Senegal.
The agreement provides a mechanism to allow a transition of the contract to an engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) contract at a later stage. TechnipFMC will work on defining the technology and equipment scope and brings expertise to deliver major projects.
The initial subsea infrastructure connects the first four wells consolidated through production pipelines leading to a FPSO vessel, from which liquids are removed and the export gas is transported via a pipeline to the floating liquid natural gas (FLNG) hub terminal where the gas is liquefied.
“We are very honored to be awarded this contract in West Africa which further demonstrates our leading position in offshore gas monetization. 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.
