中国石化新闻网讯 据世界液化天然气新闻2月12消息称，总部位于达拉斯的科斯莫斯能源公司表示，它该公司已与合作伙伴一起与英国石油天然气销售公司签署了一项液化天然气供应协议，从Greater Tortue Ahmeyim项目第一阶段开始供应。
根据科斯莫斯的独立储备审计公司Ryder Scott company的评估，，该公司在签署SPA协议后，该公司打算预定与第一阶段相关的约1亿桶油当量的探明净储量。当Tortue项目的下一阶段获得批准，并签署了相应的销售和购买协议时，该公司预计会预定更多的储量。
科斯莫斯能源公司高级副总裁兼毛里塔尼亚-塞内加尔业务部门负责人Todd Niebruegge表示：“对于毛里塔尼亚和塞内加尔政府、SMHPM、Petrosen、BP和科斯莫斯来说，SPA的签署是Greater Tortue Ahmeyim项目的一个重要里程碑。”
值得注意的是，英国石油公司在2018年12月对Greater Tortue Ahmeyim油田做出了最终投资决定。
Greater Tortue Ahmeyim项目将使用超深水海底系统和中水浮式生产储油卸油船(FPSO)生产天然气，FPSO将处理天然气，去除较重的碳氢化合物成分。然后，天然气将被转移到近岸枢纽的浮动液化天然气(FLNG)设施。

Kosmos inks LNG supply deal with BP
Dallas-based Kosmos Energy said that together with its partners it has signed an LNG supply deal with BP Gas Marketing for volumes from Phase 1 of the Greater Tortue Ahmeyim project.
Under the agreement with BP’s unit, the project would deliver up to 2.45 million tonnes of LNG per annum over an initial term of up to 20 years, Kosmos said in its statement.
Following the signing of the SPA, Kosmos intends to book net proved reserves of approximately 100 million barrels of oil equivalent associated with Phase 1, as evaluated by the company’s independent reserve auditor Ryder Scott Company. The company expects to book additional reserves when further phases of the Tortue project are sanctioned and sale and purchase agreements signed for the offtake volumes.
“The signing of the SPA is an important milestone in the Greater Tortue Ahmeyim project for the Governments of Mauritania and Senegal, SMHPM, Petrosen, BP and Kosmos,” said Todd Niebruegge, senior vice president and head of the Mauritania-Senegal business unit at Kosmos Energy.
“With the signing of this agreement, we have materially increased the proved reserve base of the company and the project remains on track to deliver first gas in the first half of 2022,” he said.
It is worth reminding that BP reached the final investment decision for the Greater Tortue Ahmeyim field in December of 2018.
The Greater Tortue Ahmeyim project will produce gas from an ultra-deepwater subsea system and mid-water floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel, which will process the gas, removing heavier hydrocarbon components. The gas will then be transferred to a floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility at a nearshore hub.
The FLNG facility is designed to provide circa 2.5 million tonnes of LNG per annum on average, with the total gas resources in the field estimated to be around 15 trillion cubic feet, with first gas expected in 2022.
