Wood and KBR have secured a new multi-million dollar contract to deliver integrated front-end engineering design (FEED) for Shell Australia’s Crux project to build a not normally manned (NNM) platform and gas export pipeline.

The Crux project is located approximately 600 kilometers north of Broome, offshore Western Australia (WA).

The Crux facilities will be the source of backfill gas supply to the Shell-operated Prelude floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility. The remotely operated, minimum facilities NNM platform concept for Crux will dry the gas and export the gas/condensate to Prelude via a new 160-kilometer multiphase gas pipeline.

The services will be delivered over 18-months by Wood and KBR’s engineering and project management teams in Perth, WA, supported by Wood’s Kuala Lumpur resource base. The teams will provide a single integrated FEED for the Crux topsides, jacket, export pipeline and subsea pipeline end manifold (PLEM).

“This contract win to deliver the next generation of offshore facilities for Shell Australia demonstrates our unrivalled subsea pipeline expertise and offshore engineering capabilities,” said Robin Watson, Wood’s chief executive.
