BP commissions TechnipFMC to supply Tortue Ahmeyim FPSO
BP has awarded TechnipFMC an EPCIC contract for the deepwater Tortue Ahmeyim FPSO which will operate offshore the maritime border of Mauritania and Senegal.
This is a follow-up tofront-end engineering design contract awarded to the same contractor last April.
TechnipFMC said it would draw on its extensive experience with fabrication yards and previous history delivering FLNG, FPSOs, and conventional platforms for offshore gas monetization.
The development’s initial subsea infrastructure will take production from the first four wells through pipelines connected to the Tortue Ahmeyim FPSO. There liquids will be extracted, and the gas exported through another pipeline to a new LNG hub terminal for liquefaction.
