BP claims force majeure for the delivery of the FLNG vessel for the Greater Tortue FLNG project in Africa.
BP appears to be the first company to state force majeure in the wake of the coronavirus effect with the requested delay of the floating LNG vessel for its Greater Tortue LNG project offshore of Africa. This vessel was originally expected to arrive in 2022, but BP has stated that they would not be ready to receive the vessel until 2023.
Golar LNG subsidiary Gimi MS is providing this vessel originally built in 1976 as a conversion from LNG to FLNG usage with a capacity of 2.45 MMtpy. GIMI has asked BP to clarify how a significant force majeure of a year could be decided upon based upon such recent events, and BP is reportedly working towards a clarification of this decision.
