BP finalises the development concept for GTA2 project

BP and its partners have finalised the development concept for Phase 2 of the Greater Tortue Ahmeyim (GTA) liquefied natural gas (LNG) project.

The partners will evaluate a gravity-based structure (GBS) as the basis for the GTA Phase 2 expansion project (GTA2).

The BP-operated project will have a total capacity of up to three million tons per annum.

BP’s partners in the project include Petrosen, Société Mauritanienne des Hydrocarbures (SMH), and Kosmos Energy.

The GBS platform consists of a large concrete or steel structure that is placed on the ocean floor. The structure serves as a base for the LNG processing facilities, which can include gas turbines, compressors, heat exchangers, and storage tanks.

The concept plan will also incorporate and build upon the GTA infrastructure by including new wells and subsea apparatus.

To reduce operational emissions, the partners will look into liquefying LNG using electricity.

BP and its partners have started working with contractors to take the project closer to the pre-FEED stage.
