Wood Group wins third contract to support Woodside’s GWF-2 project
Wood Group has secured a $6 million contract with Woodside to support the execution of phase two of their Greater Western Flank (GWF-2) project, located on the North West Shelf (NWS), offshore Western Australia.
Effective immediately, Wood Group will provide engineering support for the subsea pipeline system during the fabrication and construction stages, the energy services company said on Tuesday.
This 15-month contract will be supported by Wood Group’s Perth, Australia office. It is the third contract secured by Wood Group to support the GWF-2 project and follows the company’s completion of detailed engineering design and procurement activities for the pipeline system.
Bob MacDonald, CEO of Wood Group’s Specialist Technical Solutions business, said: “Securing the engineering support contract for GWF-2 builds on the technical solutions and global expertise Wood Group has already brought to this complex development. We have supported the project since the concept development phase and will leverage our experience and comprehensive understanding of it, as we continue to focus on the safe and efficient execution of our services.”
The GWF-2 development represents the next phase of gas supply to the existing NWS project infrastructure, following the Persephone project. The GWF-2 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 Goodwyn A platform.
Wood Group also currently provides engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) services to Woodside’s brownfield projects team, including the provision of modification and refurbishment services across various onshore and offshore assets.
