Woodside Energy Ltd. and OneSubsea, a Cameron and Schlumberger company, jointly announced Tuesday that OneSubsea has been awarded a front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract for the proposed Woodside-operated Browse FLNG (floating liquefied natural gas) Development offshore northwest Australia.
A dedicated team of OneSubsea experts, operating out of OneSubsea’s Perth city office, will now work collaboratively with Woodside to fully define and determine the optimal subsea production system design and equipment requirements for the Browse FLNG Development.
The contract will involve up to 20 locally employed people working on the subsea scope over the next 12 to 18 months as Woodside prepares for a final investment decision (FID).
The scope was tendered to internationally and locally based suppliers. OneSubsea was selected with a competitive proposal reflecting the current economic climate.
Woodside CEO Peter Coleman said the contract award is the first of a number anticipated to be awarded in the future to Australian-based engineering firms, manufacturers and suppliers associated with the subsea elements of the Browse FLNG Development.
"Our local content commitment is focused on working with Australian-based suppliers with world-class capabilities to partner with us on our operations and developments," he said.
In 2013, OneSubsea opened a state-of-the-art life-of-field facility in Kewdale, Western Australia that was built to support Woodside and other operators in the region. The facility will be key in the development of this project.
