GE Oil & Gas has received a contract of more than US$ 150 million from Apache in Australia to supply subsea equipment for the Julimar development project, located offshore near Dampier in Western Australia.
The Apache-operated Julimar Development Project is a joint venture between Apache (65%) and Kuwait Foreign Petroleum Exploration Company (35%). The project will supply raw gas from the Julimar and Brunello gas fields to the Chevron-operated Wheatstone Project in Western Australia.
GE will be responsible for project management, engineering and procurement of the subsea equipment for the Julimar project.
“Field conditions for the Julimar project dictate the use of large-bore equipment with high pressure and temperature requirements,” said David Leslie, regional leader for Australia of GE Oil & Gas.
The GE equipment for the Julimar project includes subsea manifolds, well systems and fully integrated subsea and topside control systems. Shipments will begin in June 2013 with installation starting in the fourth quarter of that year.
