Penspen partners with MJMEnergy for study of gas pipeline network in Senegal

power plant 815799 640Engineering firm Penspen has partnered with MJMEnergy, a gas and energy consultancy, for the gas-to-power study early development phase in Senegal

Penspen will provide vital technical services for the sizing and routing of pipeline network options plus cost estimation.

The integrated MJMEnergy and Penspen team will work closely with Senegal’s government to support the overall development of its gas-to-power strategy. The contract was awarded by the International Finance Corporation, part of the World Bank, in association with the Senegalese Ministry of Petroleum and Energy.

Significant offshore oil and gas discoveries have transformed Senegal’s energy outlook and the country is now undertaking a major domestic project to bring the benefit of this natural resource to its citizens.

Penspen will undertake technical investigations of the natural gas network scenarios to connect potential gas consumers with new gas supplies. It will also provide a conceptual design for the gas network infrastructure, a cost estimate and schedule for network development, and risk assessments for design, land access, construction, operation, environmental, social and technical aspects.

MJMEnergy will define the project’s gas markets, economic and financial aspects, and develop the institutional framework and business requirements for the new public-private gas network company required to build, own and operate the network.

This scope of work is to focus on defining the new enterprise’s goals and business plan as well as its strategy, including the gas market and regulatory requirements, SWOT analysis, and pro forma financial statements.

Peter O’Sullivan, Penspen’s CEO, said, “This important project is a significant milestone for the country in providing access to competitive and clean supplies of energy to its people. We look forward to using our deep technical experience to help Senegal maximise the benefit from the natural gas it has discovered within its territorial waters.”
