UK-based TechnipFMC has secured a new front-end engineering design (FEED) contract from BP for the floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) unit for the Tortue / Ahmeyim Field Development.

The Tortue / Ahmeyim Field Development is a major liquefied natural gas (LNG) project developed offshore on the maritime border of Mauritania and Senegal in Africa.

The current deal between TechnipFMC and BP offers a mechanism that enables an easy transition of the contract to an engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) contract at a later stage of the project.

Under the agreement, TechnipFMC will be responsible for defining the technology and equipment scope, as well as delivering major projects, leveraging extensive experience with Chinese fabrication.

“We look forward to collaborating with BP to unlock the full potential of this important project.”

TechnipFMC Onshore / Offshore Business president Nello Uccelletti said: “We are very honoured to be awarded this contract in West Africa, which further demonstrates our leading position in offshore gas monetisation.

“We look forward to collaborating with BP to unlock the full potential of this important project.”

The initial subsea infrastructure links the first four wells consolidated through production pipelines leading to a FPSO vessel.

Liquids from here are removed and the export gas is transported through a pipeline to the floating liquid natural gas (FLNG) hub terminal where the gas is liquefied.

The Tortue / Ahmeyim project is located in the C-8 block off the shore of Mauritania and the Saint-Louis Profond block offshore Senegal.
