BMT Asia Pacific has signed a contract with Endeavor Energy for the development of a liquefied natural gas (LNG) storage and regasification facility in Côte d’Ivoire. BMT AP had been appointed Owners Engineer and lead design consultant and integrated the Songon Gas-to-Power Project in the West African country.
“The Songon Power Project is expected to add approximately 375 MW to Côte d’Ivoire’s national grid”, said BMT Business Development Manager Andrew Bridson. Songon, a greenfield development, will consist of combined cycle gas to power generation with an integrated fuel solution, featuring purpose-built LNG infrastructure and a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU).
At Songon, BMT conducted FEED level studies, including operability assessments, infrastructure design and optimisation studies for the supply of gas from the LNG FSRU via subsea infrastructure to the onshore gas turbines outside Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire. Aktis Hydraulics carried out the FEED level metocean evaluation and mooring analysis.
