DORIS Engineering has announced that it has won an advisor contract from the Senegalese Ministry of Petroleum and Energies for the development of oil and gas projects offshore Senegal.

According to the statement, this two-year mission consists of reviewing the optimisation and the robustness of the field development performed on these projects to be in line with the ministry’s expectations. It focuses on two projects: Grand Tortue Ahmeyim, which is operated by BP; and the SNE project, which is operated by Woodside.

Grand Tortue Ahmeyim is located at the border between Senegal and Mauritania and lies in ultradeep-water. DORIS claims that the facilities under review include the subsea network, the floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) unit and the floating LNG (FLNG) unit.

The SNE deepwater oil field, meanwhile, is located in the Rufisque, Sangomar and Sangomar deep blocks, within the Senegalese portion of the Mauritania-Senegal-Guinea Bissau Basin. According to the statement, the subsea network and the FPSO are also part of the review.

DORIS claims that this project is a great opportunity for it to train Senegalese engineers in the oil and gas deepwater developments and to teach them the use of DORIS methods and tools.

Nicolas Parsloe, CEO of DORIS Group, said: “This award is the recognition by the Senegalese Government of DORIS expertise in LNG and oil and gas deepwater projects. It is also the result of a good communication with GES-Petrogaz and understanding of their requirements. This is in line with the consultancy missions that we have performed alongside NOCs in West Africa during the last 20 years, and in line with our strategy to work hand-in-hand with NOCs and regulatory authorities. We are proud to support Senegal in its development in the oil and gas sector.”
