Japanese firm Modec is in contention to provide a floating production vessel for the Barossa project in Australia.
Modec will participate in the FEED work on a competitive basis against a joint venture of two other contractors.
Barossa is an offshore gas and light condensate project that proposes to provide a new source of gas to the existing Darwin LNG facility.
The offshore development concept includes a subsea production system and gas export pipeline as well as the FPSO, located approximately 300 kilometers north of Darwin, Australia.
The Barossa joint venturers are ConocoPhillips Australia Barossa Pty Ltd (operator, 37.5%), SK E&S Australia Pty Ltd (37.5%) and Santos Offshore Pty Ltd (25.0%).
