Black & Veatch’s patented PRICO® technology meets demand for FLNG
in critical markets
OVERLAND PARK, Kan.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Black & Veatch, a global leader in floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG)
topside solutions, has received a full notice to proceed on work to
jointly outfit a Golar LNG owned LNG carrier, Gimi, with Black &
Veatch’s patented PRICO® liquefaction technology.
The full notice to proceed (FNTP), following a limited notice in
December 2018, enables Black & Veatch to team with Keppel Shipyard
Limited to convert the Gimi into an FLNG vessel supporting the
development of Phase 1 of BP’s Greater Tortue / Ahmeyim field, located
offshore Mauritania and Senegal.
The Gimi project builds on the successes of the Golar FLNG Hilli
Episeyo, which was completed earlier in 2018 and has been in
commercial operation offshore Cameroon since.
“The lower and highly predictable costs of projects constructed in a
controlled shipyard environment are another critical advantage offered
by FLNG,” said Bob Germinder, Black & Veatch Senior Vice President and
Managing Director of Floating Oil & Gas Solutions. “This notice to
proceed underscores Black & Veatch’s standing as a trusted partner with
companies moving to meet the world’s demand for LNG.”
