Wood Group nets its third Browse FLNG FEED

  • Business & Finance

Wood  Group has secured its third front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract for the Woodside-operated proposed Browse floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) Development.

Under a new 12-month contract awarded by Shell, Wood Group Kenny (WGK) will carry out flow assurance and process integration studies for the proposed development’s three offshore  gas-condensate fields – Brecknock, Calliance and Torosa.

The Browse Joint Venture selected FLNG in conjunction with a subsea development as the preferred development concept for the Browse resources. An agreement has been executed with Shell to enable the proposed development to utilise Shell’s  FLNG technology.

This is the third FEED  contract WGK has secured for the proposed Browse FLNG Development, which is  located 425km north of Broome, Western Australia. Earlier this month, WGK announced a FEED contract award from Woodside (operator) to progress the configuration design of the flexible risers and umbilicals, and in July 2015, WGK  announced a $6 million contract to perform all design engineering for the  development’s insulated production flowline system.

The award follows WGK’s delivery of the preliminary flow assurance and process integration studies for the Browse FLNG system during the previous basis of design (BOD) phase for this deep-water project.

Effective immediately, this contract will be delivered from WGK’s Perth office.

Bob MacDonald, CEO of Wood  Group Kenny said: “To be awarded a third FEED contract on the proposed Browse  FLNG Development is testament to our excellent understanding of the asset and the  strong value and performance we have delivered to date. It also reflects Shell’s confidence in our ability to collaborate with them towards the successful delivery of the next phase of this exciting project.

“We look forward to providing  the expertise and knowledge which will enable the efficient and  effective delivery of this critically important design phase on what is one of the largest flow assurance projects for Wood Group Kenny.”
