BP has awarded oilfield services provider TechnipFMC a large (“large” ranging between $500m and $1bn) engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning (EPCIC) contract.

The EPCIC order is for a floating storage, production, storage and offloading (FPSO) unit, which is to be deployed on the Greater Tortue Ahmeyim project in West Africa, on the maritime borders of Mauritania and Senegal. The total gas reserves in the field are estimated to be around 15 trillion cubic feet.

In a statement, the company said: “TechnipFMC will bring its expertise to deliver major projects, leveraging extensive experience with fabrication yards and from successful references for delivery of offshore gas monetisation facilities such as floating liquid natural gas (FLNG), FPSO and conventional platforms.” 

This award is a continuation of a front end engineering design (FEED) contract awarded in April 2018, in which TechnipFMC was responsible for defining the technology and equipment scope for the FPSO unit.

Bermuda-based LNG shipping company Golar announced its agreement with BP for the charter of a floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) vessel to service the Greater Tortue Ahmeyim project on Wednesday.

TechnipFMC onshore/offshore business president Nello Uccelletti said: “We are honoured 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 monetisation industry.
