Wood Group Wins Another Browse FEED

Wood Group has secured a 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 US$6 million contract to perform all design engineering for the development’s insulated production flowline system.

Effective immediately, this contract will be delivered from WGK’s Perth office and adds to Wood Group’s 40 years of experience working with Shell globally. This includes WGK’s successful subsea flowline design of Australia’s first FLNG facility, Shell Prelude.

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.”

This is the second major contract Shell has awarded Wood Group this year. In August, Wood Group PSN received a letter of award for a new five year, multi-million US dollar contract to provide integrated engineering, construction, maintenance and industrial services to Shell’s four onshore oil fields in Gabon; Rabi, Gamba, Toucan and Koula.
