CH2M has landed a marine engineering support contract for the BP-led Tortue gas project that will produce LNG off Mauritania and Senegal.
BP has selected KBR as its engineering services contractor: KBR chose CH2M to provide civil and marine engineering support.
The Tortue project will produce subsea gas, using a floating gas-treatment plant, a pipeline to shore-based connection points and a nearshore hub where gas is converted into LNG. CH2M will deliver the pre-FEED studies that will determine the location, layout, form and construction of the proposed hub, supporting marine operations and planning the execution of the project.
The hub provides breakwater-protected berths for a floating LNG (FLNG) production unit and for international LNG shipments, CH2M said.
“We are pleased to perform a critical role, working with KBR on this technically challenging project for BP,” said CH2M vice president and practice director Colin Skipper. “Delivering this project requires deep technical experience and innovative thinking.”
BP announced in December its plan to invest up to US$1Bn in tapping gas off Mauritania and Senegal for export as LNG.
