Aker Solutions will support the delivery of a subsea compression system for Chevron’s Jansz-Io field offshore Australia.

The Norwegian energy service firm will work on the front-end engineering and design (FEED) of a subsea compression station that will boost the recovery of gas from the field.

Aker delivered the world’s first subsea compression system for Equinor’s Asgard field offshore Norway in 2015.

Chief executive Luis Araujo said: “Aker Solutions has worked closely with its partners MAN Energy Solutions and ABB to reduce the size and cost of the compression system.

“We are excited to work with Chevron Australia on our compressor-technology to boost recovery at the Jansz-Io field.”

Compression will help maintain plateau gas production rates as reservoir pressure drops over time.

The Jansz-Io field is located around 200 kilometers offshore the north-west coast of Western Australia.

It is a part of Chevron’s Gorgon Project, one of the world’s largest natural gas developments.
