Black & Veatch Gets Greenlight for GTA Project

Tuesday, April 23, 2019

Black & Veatch received full notice to proceed with the Grand Tortue Ahmeyim (GTA) project by operator BP. Having received a limited notice in December 2018, prior to a final investment decision (FID), Black & Veatch and Keppel Shipyard Limited will work together to convert the Golar LNG-owned LNG carrier Gimi.

The announcement is in line with the developments of phase one of BP’s GTA project for which FID was announced at the end of December 2018.

Gimi project leaders will build on the successful Hilli Episeyo FLNG vessel, also owned by Golar LNG, which was the first ever conversion from an LNG tanker to a functioning natural gas liquefaction plant. Hilli Episeyo is currently producing LNG offshore Cameroon.
