Wood has secured a new contract with Chevron Australia to provide subsea integration and flow assurance front-end engineering design (FEED) services for the Jansz-lo compression project offshore Western Australia.
Effective immediately, the one-year contract will be delivered locally by Wood’s team based in Perth, harnessing local expertise and industry capability.
The Jansz-lo compression project will maintain gas supply to the existing Gorgon LNG facility. Wood will lead as system integrator of the technology, providing independent flow assurance, subsea design, and construction engineering support during the FEED.
This new contract extends Wood’s support of Chevron-operated major capital projects in Australia.
Bob MacDonald, CEO of Wood’s Specialist Technical Solutions business, comments: “We are delighted to support Chevron as a local partner in the first Australian project to use subsea compression technology.
“This new contract demonstrates Wood’s experience in Australia’s subsea sector and knowledge of Chevron’s systems and operations on the Jansz-lo and Gorgon infrastructure.
“Our expert subsea team in Perth is committed to continuing its successful track record, using local capability to ensure the safe, reliable and timely execution of this technologically advanced project.”
In 2017, Wood signed a global master services agreement with Chevron that enables the company to deliver conceptual engineering, pre-FEED, FEED detailed design and procurement services in multiple locations across the operator’s global onshore and offshore asset portfolio.
