TechnipFMC Wins FEED for Tortue/Ahmeyim FPSO

TechnipFMC has been awarded a front-end engineering design (FEED) contract by BP for the floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) unit for the Tortue/Ahmeyim field development, a major LNG project located offshore on the maritime border of Mauritania and Senegal.

The agreement between the two companies provides a mechanism to allow a transition of the contract to an engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) contract at a later stage.

The initial subsea infrastructure connects the first four wells consolidated through production pipelines leading to a FPSO vessel. From here liquids are removed and the export gas is transported via a pipeline to the floating liquid natural gas (FLNG) hub terminal.

The Tortue/Ahmeyim field development is located in the C-8 block off the shore of Mauritania and the Saint-Louis Profond block offshore Senegal. The Tortue discovery was made by Kosmos Energy, which farmed down its investment to BP in December 2016. BP now has the largest interest (~60%) among the four partners in the project and is the operator.
