Wood Group has won a new contract to carry out front end engineering and design (FEED) work for the proposed Woodside Browse Floating Liquefied Natural Gas (FLNG) development.
The 12 month contract for the project offshore Western Australia, is worth $6million and will be carried out by Wood Group Kenny (WGK).
The company will perform all design engineering for the insulated production flowline system required for the assets offshore gas-condensate fields from their offices in Perth.
The three assets – Brecknock, Calliance and Torosa – are 300km from the Kimberley coast.
Bob MacDonald, chief executive of Wood Group Kenny, said: “This new contract is testament to the 30 year relationship Wood Group has with Woodside, which is built on trust and a proven track record of working together effectively and efficiently towards successful value project delivery.
“If Browse proceeds it will be the second FLNG development in Australia. WGK is well positioned to deliver the project having successfully designed the subsea flowlines for the country’s first FLNG facility, Shell Prelude.
“We provide, proven expertise and knowledge of the technology required to create a design to withstand Australia’s harsh cyclonic offshore environment.
“We are committed to supporting local clients and communities from our global offices, and will deliver this contract with a Perth-based workforce.”
The primary focus of the Browse subsea flowline FEED is to develop the engineerging and design of the rigid flowline system to assist the Browse joint venture participants and take a final investment decision (FID).
WGK has also worked on a number of Woodside projects including the Greater Western Flank Phase 2, Pluto, Angel and the Trunkline System Expansion Project.
The contract win comes as Wood Group announced it was in consultation with staff over a number of potential job losses from its North Sea operations.
