bp and partners have confirmed the development concept for the second phase of the bp-operated Greater Tortue Ahmeyim (GTA) Africa, LNG project that they will take forward to the following evaluation stage.

The partnership will evaluate a gravity-based structure (GBS) as the basis for the GTA Phase 2 expansion project (GTA2) with a total capacity of between 2.5-3.0 million tonnes (2.75-3.3 million tons) per annum.

GBS LNG developments have a static connection to the seabed with the structure providing LNG storage and a foundation for liquefication facilities.

The concept design will include new wells and subsea equipment, integrating and expanding existing GTA infrastructure. Powering LNG liquefication using electricity will also be looked into. bp and its partners will work with contractors to progress the concept toward the pre-FEED stage.

Gordon Birrell, bp’s executive vice president for operations and production, says: ‘We aim to build on our strong collaboration with our partners, and the Governments of Mauritania and Senegal, to further develop a long-term, successful energy hub in West Africa. GTA continues to underpin our strategy to develop the most resilient hydrocarbons to help provide energy security today.’

Also, bp recently signed an MoU with the Government of Mauritania to deliver a programme exploring the potential for large-scale production of green hydrogen in the country.
