Wood Group has announced that it has been awarded a contract for front-end engineering design (FEED) work on the proposed Browse floating LNG (FLNG) development offshore Western Australia. The contract with Woodside is effective immediately, and will see Wood Group Kenny progress the configuration design of the flexible risers and umbilicals for the Brecknock, Calliance and Torosa offshore gas-condensate fields.
Earlier in 2015, Wood Group entered a contract with Woodside for the FEED of a subsea flowline for the development located approximately 300 km from the Kimberly coast, Australia.
The CEO of Wood Group, Bob MacDonald, said: “This second contract win further builds on Wood Group’s 30 year relationship with Woodside and our role in providing technical and engineering support for the Browse FLNG Development. The project presents deep water challenges, which Wood Group Kenny is well positioned to tackle.
“Our Perth-based workforce will assist with development of the configuration design of the flexible risers and umbilicals, following previous Browse FLNG riser conceptual studies carried out by Wood Group Kenny. This project also builds on our extensive riser expertise, including participation in the early designs for several other FLNG projects.”
