KBR announced that has been contracted by BP to provide pre-FEED and project support services for the development of the Tortue/Ahmeyim field offshore Mauritania and Senegal.
The Pre-FEED work covers design of the subsea, pre-treatment floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) facility, onshore terminal, and interfaces for floating LNG (FLNG) for the Tortue project. This new work will build on the earlier concept phase work for the development of the field already completed by KBR.
In Dec. 2016, BP and Kosmos Energy formed agreed to jointly develop a West African LNG project as their agreement was approved by the government in February forging the path for the companies to develop a new LNG hub in Africa. Under the agreement, In return for a 62% stake in Mauritania's C6, C8, C12, and C13 offshore exploration blocks and a 32.49% interest in Senegal's offshore Saint Louis Offshore Profond and Cayar Offshore Profond exploration blocks, BP is giving Kosmos Energy $916 million.
Kosmos Energy will retain a 28% interest in the Mauritania blocks and a 32.51% stake in the Senegal blocks. The partners plan to process and transport the gas from Tortue at a near-shore LNG facility, with the option to expand the proposed complex in phases to accommodate future gas discoveries.
KBR’s pre-FEED work is expected to be performed over the next six months, with KBR supporting BP in the optimize stage of the Tortue field development.
