OVERLAND PARK, Kansas– Black & Veatch has received a full notice to proceed on work to jointly outfit a Golar LNG-owned LNG carrier, Gimi, with its patented PRICO liquefaction technology.
The full notice to proceed enables the company to team withKeppel Shipyard Ltd. to convert the Gimi into an FLNG vessel for Phase 1 of BP’s Greater Tortue/Ahmeyim project offshore Mauritania and Senegal.
TheGimi project builds on the success of Golar’s FLNG vesselHilli Episeyo, which was completed earlier in 2018 and has been in commercial operation offshore Cameroon since.
“The lower and highly predictable costs of projects constructed in a controlled shipyard environment are another critical advantage offered by FLNG,” said Bob Germinder, Black & Veatch senior vice president and managing director of Floating Oil & Gas Solutions. “This notice to proceed underscores Black & Veatch’s standing as a trusted partner with companies moving to meet the world’s demand for LNG.”
