Wood Group scores Darwin LNG contract from ConocoPhillips

UK-based energy services company Wood Group has secured a multi-year LNG contract with ConocoPhillips in Australia.

Wood Group PSN will deliver brownfield engineering services to the Bayu-Undan field located south west of Timor-Leste and the Darwin LNG plant at Wickham Point, according to a statement released on Tuesday.

Contract personnel will be based onshore in Perth, Western Australia and Dili, Timor-Leste.

The contract also covers associated floating, storage and offloading facilities and subsea pipelines; a Wood Group Kenny team based in Perth, Western Australia will supply subsea engineering expertise, the statement added.

ConocoPhillips-operated Darwin LNG plant in the Northern Territory was officially commissioned in January 2006.

Gas is sent via a 502 kilometre pipeline from the Bayu-Undan field to the plant at Wickham Point, where it is converted into LNG for sale to Tokyo Electric and Tokyo Gas in Japan.

The plant has an annual LNG production capacity of around 3.2 million tonnes.
