Wood Group and Technip Wrap Up Gorgon Work

Wood Group and Technip have completed 11 years of engineering and project management services on the Chevron Australia – operated Gorgon Project.

In collaboration, Wood Group and Technip Oceania formed the Gorgon Upstream Joint Venture (GUJV) in 2005 to deliver front end engineering and design (FEED) services, and transitioned with the project to provide detailed engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) services for Gorgon’s upstream facilities.

The upstream facilities encompass infrastructure to connect the deepwater Jansz-Io and Gorgon fields to the LNG plant located on Barrow Island. This included more than 800 km of onshore and offshore steel pipe and one of the largest subsea installations in the world, with the subsea structures and pipe weighing around 230,000 tonnes, the company noted.

Bob Macdonald, CEO of specialist technical solutions, Wood Group, said: “We are proud to have been part of one of the world’s largest natural gas projects from its early stages more than 10 years ago. This was a challenging deepwater project and we delivered a fully integrated offering with Technip. The strategic partnership united our technical strengths to undertake engineering feats such as designing and installing one of the world’s largest subsea tiebacks.”

Arnaud Pieton, president of Technip in Asia Pacific, said: “We are delighted to have been involved with the Chevron Australia – operated Gorgon Project over the last 11 years. The integrated project management model was highly effective and worked exceptionally well due to our strong relationship and combined technical strengths with our joint venture partner Wood Group.

The Gorgon Project is operated by Chevron Australia Pty Ltd and is a joint venture of the Australian subsidiaries of Chevron (47.3 percent), ExxonMobil (25 percent), Shell (25 percent), Osaka Gas (1.25 percent), Tokyo Gas (1 percent) and Chubu Electric Power (0.417 percent).
