TechnipFMC wins well intervention contract from Woodside
TechnipFMC has entered into a three-year frame agreement with Woodside Energy in Australia for riserless light well intervention (RLWI) and subsea services, including intervention, installation, and plug and abandonment services.
Under the agreement, TechnipFMC will initially perform installation and RLWI services in the Greater Western Flank Phase 2 (GWF-2) development, located approximately 175 km northwest of Dampier, Western Australia, the company said on Wednesday.
TechnipFMC also added that the company will install subsea trees and deploy its deepwater RLWI stack to perform well intervention services on up to eight subsea wells in the GWF-2 development.
Barry Glickman, President of Subsea Services for TechnipFMC, said: “This is the second RLWI project for TechnipFMC in Australia and builds upon TechnipFMC’s 400+ wells of prior RLWI experience in the North Sea.
“TechnipFMC’s RLWI service combines advanced well access and intervention technology with offshore and marine operations capabilities to provide a fully integrated service.”
Woodside approved the GWF-2 project development in December 2015. The project will develop 1.6 trillion cubic feet of raw gas (2P 100% project basis) from the combined Keast, Dockrell, Sculptor, Rankin, Lady Nora and Pemberton fields using subsea infrastructure and a 35 km, 16” pipeline connecting to the existing Goodwyn A platform.
