Wood Group Secures Second FEED Contract for Browse FLNG Development

John Wood Group plc announced Wednesday that it has secured its second front-end engineering design (FEED) contract for the proposed Browse floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) development offshore Western Australia.

Under the new contract with Woodside, which is effective immediately, Wood Group Kenny will work on the configuration design of the flexible risers and umbilicals for the asset’s offshore gas condensate fields - Brecknock, Calliance and Torosa. Wood Group commenced a subsea flowline FEED contract earlier this year with Woodside for the development.

Bob MacDonald, CEO of Wood Group Kenny, commented in a company statement:

“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.”
