CH2M wins contract for BP’s Mauritania and Senegal offshore fields

CH2M has secured a new marine engineering support contract on BP's Tortue development in offshore Mauritania and Senegal, West Africa.

CH2M has secured a new marine engineering support contract on BP’s Tortue development in offshore Mauritania and Senegal, West Africa.

KBR was selected by BP as an engineering services contractor for the Tortue development, opting for CH2M as the BP-approved civil and marine engineering support provider for the fields.

The development project includes subsea gas production, a floating gas treatment facility, a pipeline with domestic gas connection points and a nearshore hub facility, which will be used to convert procured gas into liquefied natural gas (LNG).

Providing breakwater-protected berths for a floating LNG production facility, the hub will enable the company to export LNG to international markets by ship.

CH2M vice-president and practice director Dr Colin Skipper said: “CH2M has a strong civil and marine works portfolio for global energy producers, and we are pleased to perform a critical role working with KBR on this technically challenging project for BP.”

“The Tortue field is estimated to contain more than 15 trillion cubic feet of discovered gas resources.”

The company’s preliminary front-end engineering design (Pre-FEED) deliverables include deciding the location of the hub, layout and the form and method of construction of the inshore hub.

They will also support marine operations and project execution planning.

CH2M’s international terminal, pipeline, and infrastructure engineering team will deliver civil and marine engineering support for the Tortue development in the UK.

The Tortue field is estimated to contain more than 15 trillion cubic feet of discovered gas resources, while the total acreage is expected to host around 50 trillion cubic feet of gas.

The project’s first gas is scheduled in 2021.
