Technip Samsung Consortium Bag 2 Deals from Shell for Browse FLNG Project
France's Technip announced Friday that the Technip Samsung Consortium was awarded two contracts by Shell for the Browse floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) project in Australia, operated by Woodside.
The Browse project covers the realization and installation of three FLNG units to develop the Brecknock, Calliance and Torosa fields in the Browse Basin, 264 miles (425 kilometers) North of Broome, Western Australia. The Browse project will capitalize on Shell's FLNG experience, as well as on Woodside's offshore and subsea development expertise.
The first contract awarded to the Technip Samsung Consortium covers the front-end engineering design (FEED) elements of the Browse FLNG project, taking into account the composition of the gas, local weather conditions and factors specific to each of the three fields. This contract was immediately novated by Shell to Woodside as operator.
The second contract covers the engineering, procurement, construction and installation of the three FLNG units of the Browse project. This contract is subject to the final investment decision from the client at the end of the FEED.
The Browse project will benefit from insights brought together by both Shell and Technip Samsung Consortium from the design and construction of Shell’s Prelude FLNG facility and aims at maximizing the replication of Prelude FLNG for the three FLNG units of the Browse project.
Nicoletta Giadrossi, president Region A -- comprising Western Europe, Africa and India -- of 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 Onshore/Offshore of Technip, commented: “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.”
