Linde as LNG licensor of Greater Tortue Ahmeyim project

16 January 2020

Linde announced recently that it has been selected as liquefied natural gas (LNG) technology licensor for phases 2 and 3 of the Greater Tortue Ahmeyim project, jointly developed by BP, Kosmos Energy, Société des Pétroles du Sénégal (PETROSEN), and Société Mauritanienne des Hydrocarbures et de Patrimoine Minier (SMHPM).

Greater Tortue Ahmeyim, which will be operated by BP, is the deepest offshore project in Africa to date and is located offshore on the maritime border between Mauritania and Senegal.

Under the terms of the signed Master Agreement, Linde will provide technology licensing services, based on the Linde MFC2® liquefaction technology. Linde will also manufacture and supply the related cryogenic coil-wound heat exchangers, subject to a future call-off.

The Linde MFC2® liquefaction technology is both compact and highly energy-efficient, making it well suited to offshore projects like Greater Tortue Ahmeyim.
