CH2M has been awarded a new marine engineering support contract by KBR for BP’s Tortue development, located 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. The hub facility will provide breakwater-protected berths for a floating LNG production unit and, once completed, enable LNG exports.
CH2M’s preliminary front end engineering design deliverables support final decision-making on the hub’s location and layout, the construction method for the inshore hub and support, marine operations, and project execution planning.
“CH2M has a strong civil and marine works portfolio for global energy producers, and we are pleased to perform a critical role working with KBR on this technically challenging project for BP,” Dr. Colin Skipper, CH2M Vice President and Practice Director, said. “Delivering this project requires deep technical experience and innovative thinking–qualities on which our reputation has been built.”
Civil and marine engineering support for the project will be delivered by CH2M’s international terminal, pipeline and infrastructure engineering team.
