Three FLNG units in the Browse Basin
Operated by Woodside, the Browse project includes the realisation and installation of three FLNG units to develop the Brecknock, Calliance and Torosa fields in the Browse Basin, 425 km North of Broome, Western Australia. The Browse project will utilise Shell's FLNG and Woodside's offshore and subsea development expertise.
Nicoletta Giadrossi, President of Region A(2) at Technip, stated: "We are proud to have been awarded this contract which will associate the know-how and expertise gained on Prelude FLNG by our teams, while reinforcing our partnership with Samsung Heavy Industries."
Nello Uccelletti, President of Onshore/Offshore at Technip, added: “While FLNG represents a breakthrough in the industry, Technip’s teams worldwide have played a key role in this technology since its inception by bringing together our unique combination of expertise – not only in floating units, but also in subsea developments and liquefaction facilities. Today, we are glad to continue to strengthen our relationship with Shell and Woodside and confirm our FLNG leadership.”
