FLNG vessel arrives at BP's GTA gas project site off Mauritania and Senegal

The UK oil and gas group BP has announced that Golar LNG’s converted floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) vessel Gimi has arrived at the site of the Greater Tortue Ahmeyim (GTA) project located offshore Mauritania and Senegal. The BP-operated GTA Phase 1 is set to produce around 2.3 Mt/year of LNG, and the Gimi vessel is able to store up to 125,000 m3 of LNG. The project is expected to produce LNG for more than 20 years, enabling Mauritania and Senegal to become a global LNG hub. 

The GTA Phase 1 project will produce gas from reservoirs in deep water, approximately 120 km offshore, through a subsea system to a floating production and storage offloading (FPSO) vessel, which will initially process the gas, removing heavier hydrocarbon components. In February 2023, BP and partners Kosmos Energy, PETROSEN and SMH confirmed the development concept for the second phase of the GTA project, which would have total capacity of between 2.5-3 Mt/year.
