BMT Asia Pacific (BMT), a subsidiary of BMT Group Ltd, has been appointed Owners Engineer and lead design consultant by Endeavor Energy, for the development of the LNG storage and regasification facility as part of the Songon Gas-to-Power Project in Côte d’Ivoire.
 

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).
 
This appointment builds on the successful relationship established with Endeavor last year in developing Africa’s first ever LNG import terminal via Endeavor and GE’s Ghana 1000 Power Project. At Songon, BMT will be conducting 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.
 
Andrew Bridson, Business Development Manager at BMT, comments: “The Songon Power Project, jointly led by Endeavor Energy and Starenergie2073 is expected to add approximately 375 MW to Côte d’Ivoire’s national grid, a boost in generation capacity that will sustain and propel the country’s rapidly expanding economy.”
