Wood Group secured a contract to carry out front-end engineering and design (FEED) for the Woodside-operated Browse Floating Liquefied Natural Gas (FLNG) Development, offshore Western Australia.
Wood Group Kenny (WGK) will perform all design engineering for the insulated production flowline system required for the asset’s offshore gas-condensate fields – Brecknock, Calliance and Torosa – located 300 km from the Kimberly coast. The 12-month contract, which is valued at US$6 million and effective immediately, will be delivered from WGK’s Perth office.
The primary focus of the Browse subsea flowline FEED is to develop the engineering and design of the rigid flowline system to assist the Browse joint venture participants to take a final investment decision (FID), which Woodside is targeting in the second half of 2016.
The award follows WGK’s delivery of the preliminary engineering for the Browse flowline system during the basis of design phase. It also continues the strong, long-term partnership between both companies; WGK has worked on projects, including Greater Western Flank Phase 2, Pluto, Angel and the Trunkline System Expansion Project.
