CH2M has been awarded a new marine engineering support contract on BP’s Tortue development offshore Mauritania and Senegal.

The new energy development project involves subsea gas production, a floating gas treatment facility, a pipeline with domestic gas connection points and a nearshore hub facility where the gas is converted into liquefied natural gas (LNG). The hub facility provides breakwater-protected berths for a floating LNG production unit and for international export of LNG by ship.

CH2M’s preliminary front end engineering design (Pre-FEED) deliverables support final decision-making on the hub location, layout, and the form and method of construction of the inshore hub and support to marine operations and project execution planning.

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

Dr Colin Skipper, CH2M vice president and practice director, 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. Delivering this project requires deep technical experience and innovative thinking–qualities on which our reputation has been built.”
