Req ID 96063BR Job category Compliance & Ethics Countries (State/Region) South East Location United Kingdom - South East - Sunbury Apply now

Role synopsis

The Ethics & Compliance Analyst for the Mauritania & Senegal Region plays a key role in supporting the Ethics & Compliance Manager to help the business integrate ethics and compliance into its daily management and strategic planning and to operate in accordance with BP’s Values and Behaviours and Code of Conduct.

Mauritania & Senegal is a new Upstream Region. This role offers an exciting opportunity to work in an emerging world class hydrocarbon basin supporting a development that is not only a significant event for BP but also for the two countries involved.

The licences include the Tortue field estimated to contain up to 15 Tcf of discovered gas resource. The first phase consists of 13 subsea wells in 2,800m water depth tied back to a gas processing FPSO positioned between the field and a nearshore hub/terminal hosting a leased floating LNG (FLNG) vessel and LNG export terminal facilities. This will be closely followed by a gas processing platform situated by the FPSO processing the gas from a further 14 wells and an increase of the FLNG capacity at the hub terminal.

BP has signed agreements to work with Kosmos Energy to develop these resources. Under the terms of the agreements, Kosmos will continue to operate exploration activities in the licences, which hold world-class deepwater gas discoveries and exploration prospectively. BP is responsible, as operator, for all appraisal and development activities.

The Region also covers new African venture countries, namely Sao Tome & Principe, Côte D’Ivoire and Madagascar. Activities in these countries include seismic acquisition and analysis, environmental studies and some significant social investment commitments. Over the next four years, we expect to proceed with a number of appraisal wells in these countries.
