KBR awarded pre-FEED for BP’s Greater Tortue Ahmeyim Project
HOUSTON – KBR, Inc. KBR announced that BP has awarded KBR's UK operating subsidiary the Pre-FEED Services contract for Phases 2 and 3 of BP's Greater Tortue Ahmeyim project, for the further development of Tortue field beyond Phase 1, located at the maritime border of Senegal and Mauritania.
These next phases of the Greater Tortue Ahmeyim project will significantly expand capacity to deliver additional gas from an ultra deep-water subsea system, tied back to mid-water gas processing platforms. The gas will then be transferred to pre-treatment and offshore LNG facilities located at the established Phase 1 hub.
"We are proud to be part of this groundbreaking project which will deliver LNG revenues and gas to Africa for decades to come," said Jay Ibrahim, KBR President, Energy Solutions - Services. "This win demonstrates KBR's strategic commitment to our partner BP to deliver an innovative and cost effective deepwater gas value chain together."
On the changing landscape of global natural gas trade, the US has magnified its export power by remaining a net exporter for 13 months as of February 2019.
