BP has signed agreements with Kosmos Energy to develop very significant gas resources in West Africa. The agreements involve BP assuming operatorship of a very large licence position (33,000 km2) in the countries of Mauritania (62% working interest) and Senegal (32.5% effective working interest). Under the terms of the agreements BP will operate all appraisal and development activities and Kosmos will continue to operate Exploration activities in the licences, which hold world-class deepwater gas discoveries and exploration prospectively.

The licences include the Tortue field estimated to contain up to 15 Tcf of discovered gas resource, and the total licence position could contain as much as 50 Tcf of gas resource potential. The agreements also include BP's cooperation with Kosmos in an Area of Mutual Interest offshore Mauritania, Senegal, and The Gambia. The multi-year exploration activities and development project at Tortue represent an exciting and strategically significant investment opportunity for BP in an emerging world-class hydrocarbon basin.

The proposed development concept for Phase 1A includes Subsea Production System (SPS) at the field location with initially 4 subsea wells tied back to a pre-treatment FPSO on the continental shelf (120m water depth) via a 80km pipeline. Topsides weight is estimated around 16k tonnes. The FPSO will serve as a condensate storage hub and consist of 3 phase separation, gas conditioning design process capacity of 495mmscfd average for export via a 30km pipeline to a nearshore Floating LNG moored at a breakwater hub. The Hub also has a Quarters and Utilities facility which will have an operating PoB of 216 and will supply the utilities required to support the jetty systems in support of loading operations LNG.

The Hub and Terminal (H&T) C&I Integration Commissioning Superintendent will initially focus on discipline excellence and focused on ensuring the integration of all interfaces across Tortue Phase 1 projects (Subsea, FPSO, Facilities, QU and FLNG interfaces) to ensure the Electrical, Instrument and Telecoms scopes of work are identified and captured in each of the contractors captured Completions Management System databases, the testing requirements are clearly defined and the execution scope is in a plan, highlighting any gaps and intervention plans required to close out gaps. As a discipline expert, work with each of the delivery teams to ensure a consistent approach is being adopted within each of the delivery contractor / BP teams e.g. Management of software change, Safety Integrity Testing (SIF). The role will report to the CSU Director initially based in Sunbury focusing across all delivery lines which will require business travel to each of the delivery line locations to allow the true integration of scopes. The position will then transition to report to the H&T Project General Manager and will transfer to a rotational position to the EPCI contractor's construction yard in China. The H&T C&I Commissioning Superintendent role will transition into the CSU Manager Role and will provide leadership of the site commissioning and start-up (CSU) team and provide leadership overseeing the contractor completions and commissioning activities leading to acceptance of system handovers. This role will be responsible for providing assurance and self-verification of the Facilities and QU scopes for the Tortue project. The role will transition to offshore M&S on a rotation to support and lead the hook-up and commissioning (HUC) scopes of work between the QU and Facilities followed by the HUC scope associated with the arrival of the FLNG and will lead the associated start-up activities supporting the Global Operations Team.
