TechnipFMC wins FPSO contract for BP’s Greater Tortue project


BP has handed TechnipFMC the contract for the floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) unit for its Greater Tortue Ahmeyim on the maritime border of Mauritania and Senegal.

TechnipFMC, which was also awarded the front end engineering design contract in April 2018, will provide engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning services for the project.

The exact contract value was not disclosed, but TechnipFMC said it was worth somewhere between £375 million and £755m.

Nello Uccelletti, president of TechnipFMC’s onshore/offshore business, said: “We are honored to be entrusted with the execution of this prestigious contract in West Africa which is a testimonial to our long-term partnership with BP and our leadership in the gas monetisation industry.

“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”.
