Technip Goes Subsea in Australia
- Business & Finance
Technip has been awarded a pipeline installation contract by Woodside Energy Limited for the Greater Western Flank Phase 1 Project located 130 kilometers North West of Karratha in Western Australia.
This pipeline will link the Goodwyn GH and Tidepole fields via a subsea tie-back to the existing Goodwyn A (GWA) platform and represents the next major development for the Woodside-operated North West Shelf Project.
The contract scope includes load out, transportation and installation of 16 kilometers of 16” gas flow line from the Tidepole manifold to the GWA platform.
Technip’s operating center in Perth, Australia will execute the contract, with the support from the Singapore office. Offshore installation will be carried out by the Global 1200 or the Global 1201, two flagship vessels that joined Technip’s fleet through the recent acquisition of Global Industries.
The total investment for the GWF Phase 1 Project is about A$2.5 billion (Operator’s estimate; 100% cost) with project start-up expected early 2016.
