This second phase, off the coast of the Republic of Congo, Africa, will involve the fabrication, transportation and installation of a new floating LNG vessel, a converted floating separation, storage and booster unit (FSU), wellhead platforms and associated tie-in pipelines and ancillaries.

ABL is also in charge of the technical review of key project and procedural documentation, drawings and calculations, the suitability surveys of the proposed marine fleet for all T&I operations, and onsite attendance to review and approve attendances for warranted operations.

Having supported the first phase since February 2023, ABL’s involvement in the project is expected to run from 2024 until offshore works are completed and will be carried out by the company’s French operations team.

ABL France provides technical advice to support renewables, maritime and oil and gas sectors in France, Benelux countries, Spain and Francophone Africa.

As well as in Africa, ABL has been expanding its operations in Europe. In March, HLPFI reported that it opened an office in Constanta, Romania, to support the Black Sea region’s offshore energy and maritime markets.
