TechnipFMC has been awarded a contract by Woodside to upgrade the Pluto LNG offshore platform, located offshore Western Australia.
The contract includes the Engineering, Procurement, Construction, Installation, and Commissioning (EPCIC) of the Pluto water handling module. This module, to be installed on the existing Pluto Alpha Gas Production Platform, will consist of facilities for water separation and treatment, together with upgraded power generation units.
Nello Uccelletti, President of TechnipFMC's Onshore/Offshore business, commented: "We are honoured to be entrusted with the execution of this prestigious contract which is a testimonial to our long-term partnership with Woodside and our leadership in the Gas Monetisation industry. This award is one of our strategic ‘early engagement’ achievements, based on the optimised design developed by TechnipFMC during the tendering phase."
The Pluto offshore facility is located approximately 190 km off Karratha, in Western Australia's north-west. The gas produced at the offshore facility is transferred through an existing pipeline to Woodside’s Pluto LNG Onshore plant. The production license is held by Woodside (Operator and 90%), Kansai Electric (5%), and Tokyo Gas (5%).
