Chevron picks Aker subsea compression tech offshore Australia

Chevron Australia has selected Aker Solutions to provide subsea compression technology for the Jansz-Io Compression (J-IC) project offshore Western Australia.

The companies remain in ongoing discussions to finalize the contract, after which a further announcement will be made.

The value of the contract is expected to be about NOK 7 billion, Aker Solutions said.

Earlier today, Chevron Corporation revealed it will proceed with the approximately $4 billion (AU$6 billion) Jansz-Io Compression project.

The field is located around 200 kilometres offshore the northwest coast of Western Australia at approximately 1,350 meters below the surface.

A modification of the existing Gorgon development, J-IC will include the construction and installation of a 27,000-tonne normally unattended floating Field Control Station (FCS), approximately 6,500 tonnes of subsea compression infrastructure, and a 135-kilometer submarine power cable linked to Barrow Island.
