The Shwe project is a multiple gas-condensate field integrated development within Blocks A-1 and A-3, located in the Bay of Bengal, offshore Myanmar.

The development area consists of three major field areas – the central Shwe field, the northern Shwe Phyu field, and the southern Mya field. The central Shwe field is located in approximately 140-meter water depth, with the existing platform in a water depth of 111 meters.

On the 23rd September 2019, DORIS Engineering in Paris, as HHI sub-contractor, started the Phase 3 FEED Design Competition whose scope includes a new LP Compression Platform bridge-connected to the existing SHP (Drilling, Central Production & Accommodation Platform).

The Phase 3 Project comprises the provision of LP compression, to support ongoing production from the existing fields. The new LP Compression platform will be bridge-connected to the existing drilling, production, and accommodation platform.

DORIS Engineering and HHI previously cooperated for Phase 1 of this project in 2009. The development of Phase 1 consisted of the SHP platform with a capacity of 640 MMscfd installed by float-over as well as the subsea production system of Mya North, infield and export pipelines and onshore gas terminal.

The FEED design competition of full-field was won by HHI and DORIS. The EPCIC was then performed by HHI, with detailed engineering of the SHP – a 25,000 tons topsides deck and 20,000 tons jacket – carried out by DORIS Engineering in 2010.

It is worth reminding that McDermott also received a front-end engineering design (FEED) contract for the Shwe Phase 3 gas field development in late September.
