BP awards a large EPCIC contract to TechnipFMC

gas rigsTechnipFMC has been awarded a contract by BP for the engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning (EPCIC) of the floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) unit to be deployed offshore on the maritime border of Mauritania and Senegal

This award is a continuation to the front end engineering design (FEED) contract awarded in April 2018. It further reflects the continent's ambitious projects to develop African oil and gas sectors.

TechnipFMC will bring its expertise to deliver major projects, leveraging extensive experience with fabrication yards and from successful references for delivery of offshore gas monetisation facilities such as floating liquid natural gas (FLNG), FPSO and conventional platforms.

Nello Uccelletti, president of TechnipFMC’s onshore and offshore business, commented, “This award is one of our strategic ‘early engagement’ achievements, following the successful completion by TechnipFMC of the FEED study. We look forward to collaborating with BP to unlock the full potential of this important project.”

The initial subsea infrastructure connects the first four wells consolidated through production pipelines leading to this FPSO. From here liquids are removed and the export gas is transported via a pipeline to the LNG hub terminal where the gas is liquefied.
