Greater Tortue Ahmeyim FPSO Heads For Its Project Site

BP reported that a floating production, storage, and offloading (FPSO) unit for the firm-operated Greater Tortue Ahmeyim (GTA) LNG assignment has successfully departed toward the site off Mauritania and Senegal from China.

Following the completion of sea trials, the FPSO set sail from Qidong on 20 January. The construction of this vessel at the COSCO shipyard has taken more than three and a half years.

News sources suggest that the Greater Tortue Ahmeyim FPSO will travel 22,224km via Singapore and arrive at the final destination in Q2 2023.

Per BP, the floating vessel forms a critical part of the integrated Greater Tortue Ahmeyim LNG project.

The assignment includes the subsea building of gas fields and near-shore floating LNG or FLNG services. The initial phase is estimated to produce almost 2.3 million tons of LNG yearly.

The Greater Tortue Ahmeyim FPSO is further expected to process natural gas by filtering impurities, condensate, and water before exporting it using the pipeline to the assignment’s FLNG facilities which are situated about 10 km offshore.

It includes about eight production and processing modules and is expected to process 500 million standard cubic feet of gas daily.

The FPSO is going to be positioned in about 120m of water. It boasts an area equal to two football fields and about ten storeys.

Made up of over 81,000 tons of steel, 1.52 million meters of cable, and 37,000m of pipe spools, the vessel will have 140 individuals on board in regular operations. The ship is also expected to serve as a base for the production team.

Rahman Rahmanov, the VP of BP Mauritania and Senegal assignments, said they are building one of the most innovative gas projects in the world. The FPSO forms one of the essential components.
