FPSO Vessel Sets Sail

Bound for Greater Tortue Ahmeyim project

BP is sending a floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel for the BP-operated Greater Tortue Ahmeyim (GTA) liquefied natural gas (LNG) launched project site off the coasts of Mauritania and Senegal in Africa. The FPSO is a key part of the major integrated GTA development that also includes subsea development of gas fields and near-shore floating LNG (FLNG) facilities. The FPSO will process natural gas before exporting it by pipeline to the project’s FLNG facilities. The majority of the gas will be liquefied by the FLNG facilities, enabling export to international markets.
