Technip Energies has awarded a contract for pre-installation and subsequent hook-up for a floating project offshore Mauritania and Senegal to Havfram.
The work is on BP’s Greater Tortue Ahmeyim (GTA) project, offshore Senegal and Mauritania.
Norwegian Havfram will first project manage, engineer, transport and install driven piles and corresponding mooring lines. It will then return to hook up the pre-installed mooring system to the floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO).
The FPSO will be 35 km from shore, in around 120 metres of water. The project will provide gas for LNG exports and for domestic consumption.
“The Greater Tortue Ahmeyim FPSO Mooring Pre-Lay and Hook-up project is another significant mooring project award in what is a core business line for Havfram,” said the company’s CEO Odd Strømsnes.
“This award further enhances our already strong track record in complex mooring projects and we are proud to have been chosen by Technip Energies for their award of such a significant project.”
Havfram’s project management and team is working on the project at its Aberdeen office. The company is carrying out similar work at the Johan Castberg and Jotun FPSO, on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
Strømsnes said this was the company’s third project in Mauritania in recent years. Havfram was previously Ocean Installer.
The company won work in 2018 to decommission the Berge Helen FPSO on the Chinguetti field.
