CH2M wins major marine engineering support contract on BP project developing offshore gas fields in Senegal and Mauritania



LONDON, Oct. 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- CH2M has been awarded a new marine engineering support contract on BP's innovative 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. 

CH2M wins major marine engineering support contract on BP project developing offshore gas fields in Senegal and Mauritania.

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. According to Dr Colin Skipper, CH2M Vice President and Practice Director, "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. Delivering this project requires deep technical experience and innovative thinking--qualities on which our reputation has been built."

With a longstanding oil and gas industry service record, CH2M has worked for major energy producers on many projects around the world for over 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.
