BMT joins Ghana floating LNG studies

Offshore staff

LONDON, UK - Endeavour Energy has appointed BMT Asia Pacific (BMT) owners engineer and lead design consultant for the development of a floating LNG storage and regasification vessel offshore Ghana.

This would send supplies to the Ghana 1000 Gas to Power Project, and could also be Africa’s first LNG import terminal.

Endeavour is leading this development with General Electric, Eranove, and Sage Petroleum. The project could supply over 1,000 MW to Ghana’s national grid once completed.

Excelerate Energy will provide the FLNG and is additionally providing assistance in locating the FLNG terminal infrastructure.

BMT will work with Endeavour and Excelerate on front end engineering design studies that include operability assessments, infrastructure design, and optimization for the supply of gas from the offshore, moored FSRU via subsea infrastructure to the onshore gas turbines at Aboadze, Ghana. 

In March, Shell and the Ghana 1000 consortium entered into exclusive negotiations regarding a long-term supply agreement for liquefied natural gas.

The five-year project should boost Ghana’s power generation capacity by 50% from the current 2,000 MW installed capacity.
