Wood Group in design work for Woodside’s GWF-2
- Business & Finance
Wood Group has secured a contract with Woodside to provide the detailed design of the Greater Western Flank Phase 2 (GWF-2) flowline system. The GWF-2 project is located on the North West Shelf, offshore Western Australia.
Under the contract, Wood Group Kenny (WGK) says it will perform the flowline system detailed design and support the related procurement and construction processes. This award follows the completion of the flowline front-end engineering design (FEED) for GWF-2.
Robin Watson, chief executive of Wood Group, said: “Securing the detailed design contract for GWF-2 is testament to the technical expertise Wood Group Kenny has already brought to this development.
“Following on from the successful FEED work, this award demonstrates the confidence the client has in our subsea experience and innovative approach to deliver this complex project. Having been involved in the earlier design stages means we have a comprehensive understanding of GWF-2.”
The GWF-2 Project represents the next phase of gas supply to existing North West Shelf Project infrastructure after the Persephone Project. GWF-2 will develop the hydrocarbon resources of the Keast, Dockrell, Sculptor, Rankin, Lady Nora and Pemberton fields through the existing Goodwyn A platform.
The total investment for the project is expected to be approximately $2.0 billion (operator’s estimate; 100% cost), with initial project start-up expected in 2H 2019.
