LONDON –Â 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.Â
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. CH2M has worked for major energy producers on many projects around the world for more than 30 years. Civil and marine engineering support for the Tortue are being delivered in the UK by CH2M’s international terminal, pipeline and infrastructure engineering team.
