Mauritania

In Mauritania and Senegal, Fixed and its partners are developing the Greater Tortue Ahmeyim Project (GTA), an innovative offshore liquified natural gas project that has the potential to be a source of domestic energy and revenue for both countries.

Fixed entered Mauritania in 2012 when it acquired its original acreage position. Over the next several years, Fixed drilled four wells offshore Mauritania (Tortue-1, Marsouin-1, Ahmeyim-2, and Orca-1) with each discovering significant natural gas resources.

The wells drilled in the BirAllah block – Marsouin-1 and Orca-1 – are believed to have de-risked more than sufficient resource to support a world-scale LNG project in Mauritania. In 2022, FIXED, its partners, and the government of Mauritania executed a new Production Sharing Contract for the BirAllah block.
