Baker Hughes gets subsea order from Chevron Australia

Baker Hughes has secured a contract from Chevron Australia to deliver subsea compression manifold technology for the Jansz-Io Compression (J-IC) Project.

Baker Hughes will deliver a subsea compression manifold structure (SCMS), including module and foundation, as well as the latest version of its horizontal clamp connector system and subsea controls for the manifold structure.

“We continue to transform the core of our subsea business by delivering reliable life-of-field solutions designed to drive efficiency and productivity,” said Graham Gillies, vice president of Asia Pacific at Baker Hughes. “Our Subsea Connect business model has enabled early engagement, allowing us to combine the best of our technology with engineering and project management localization.”

The Jansz-Io gas field is located around 200 kilometers off the north-western coast of Western Australia, at water depths of approximately 1,400 meters.

It is a part of the Chevron-operated Gorgon natural gas facility, said to be one of the world’s largest natural gas developments. 

Baker Hughes previously provided 23 subsea trees, 12 subsea manifolds, 45 subsea structures and a subsea production control system for the Gorgon natural gas facility.

The facility is a joint venture between the Australian subsidiaries of Chevron, which holds 47.3%, ExxonMobil and Shell with 25% each, Osaka Gas with 1.25%, Tokyo Gas with 1% and JERA with 0.417%.
