Woodside hires Wood for engineering and rig services in Australia
- Business & Finance
Oilfield services provider Wood has been awarded two new contracts by Woodside to deliver engineering and rig modification services offshore Australia and a concept definition study for the Julimar Phase 2 project.
Wood said on Tuesday that the engineering and rig modification services will be executed under a three-year non-exclusive outline agreement, which has two one-year extension options and is effective immediately.
The concept definition study is for the subsea flowline and umbilical system for phase two of the Julimar project, comprising the Julimar and Brunello fields in Western Australia, and is also effective immediately.
The Woodside-operated Julimar Project is a subsea development that will connect the Julimar and Brunello gas fields to the offshore Chevron-operated Wheatstone platform, supplying 20% of the Wheatstone Project’s foundation capacity of natural gas. The Wheatstone project kicked off production in early October.
The contract will be delivered by Wood’s Perth office. Wood previously completed front end engineering design (FEED) and detailed design for the Julimar phase 1 subsea and flowline system.
Robin Watson, chief executive of Wood, comments: “We have been leveraging our broad capabilities to support Woodside across their asset portfolio for over three decades. These new contracts strengthen our relationship and reinforce our position as a trusted provider of subsea, pipeline and modification services in the region.”
