Black & Veatch receives limited notice to proceed on conversion of FLNG Vessel for BP field development work

Teaming with Keppel, Black & Veatch’s patented PRICO® technology to further bolster FLNG prospects in West Africa

Black & Veatch, a global leader in floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) solutions, has received a limited notice to proceed on work to jointly outfit a Golar LNG owned LNG carrier, Gimi, with its patented PRICO® liquefaction technology. Black & Veatch is teaming with Keppel Shipyard Limited to convert the Gimi into an FLNG vessel supporting the development of Phase 1 of the Greater Tortue / Ahmeyim field, located offshore Mauritania and Senegal. BP holds majority interest and operatorship in the Greater Tortue/Ahmeyim project.

The Gimi project will build on the successes of the Golar FLNG Hilli Episeyo which was completed earlier in the year and has been in commercial operation offshore Cameroon since.

“Preparing the Gimi for production will mark another major proof point that FLNG can meet the world’s rising demand for energy,” said Bob Germinder, Black & Veatch Senior Vice President and Managing Director of Floating Oil & Gas Solutions. “It also represents fresh confirmation that Black & Veatch’s PRICO® technology plays a leading role in moving the market forward by providing a nimble, efficient and cost-effective solution.”
