Black and Veatch is teaming with Singapore’s Keppel Shipyard to convert a 125,000-cubic-metre LNG carrier Gimi into a floating liquefaction facility.
The work is being conducted for Golar LNG as part of BP’s field development in West Africa.
BP holds a majority interest and operatorship in the Greater Tortue/Ahmeyin project development located offshore of Mauritania and Senegal.
Proceeding with front-end engineering and design (FEED) on the provision of the Gimi FLNG vessel will support Phase 1A of BP’s development plans for the region, which also includes development of a floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) unit.
Built to relevant marine classification society rules and regulations, the vessel conversion is expected by the end of 2018.
