Black & Veatch receives limited notice to proceed on FLNG conversion

Published by
LNG Industry,

Black & Veatch has announced that it 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.

According to the statement, Black & Veatch will work with Keppel Shipyard Ltd to convert the carrier into a floating LNG (FLNG) vessel. This will support the development of Phase 1 of the Greater Tortue/Ahmeyim field, which is located offshore Mauritania and Senegal. BP reportedly holds a majority interest and operatorship in the Greater Tortue/Ahmeyim project.

Black & Veatch claims that the Gimi project will follow up on the success of the Golar FLNG Hilli Episeyo, which was completed last year, and has been operating commercially offshore Cameroon ever since.

Bob Germinder, Black & Veatch Senior Vice President and Managing Director of Floating Oil & Gas Solutions, said: “Preparing the Gimi for production will mark another major proof point that FLNG can meet the world’s rising demand for energy.

“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.”
