This is the latest in a series of oil and gas service-based contracts for AMEC in the Far East and further strengthens the company's position in the Asia Pacific region. It follows the alliance's successful completion of front-end engineering and design for the Enfield project from AMEC-Fluor's Perth office.
Neil Bruce, Managing Director of AMEC's Oil and Gas division, said: "Added to our long-term services work on the Malampaya oil and gas field in the Philippines and our ongoing work for BP renovating platforms in the Java Sea, this contract for Woodside demonstrates the global reach of our integrated skills and, in particular, enhances our position in the oil and gas industry in the strategically important Asian-Pacific region."
Under the reimbursable and incentivised contract, the alliance will now provide full engineering, procurement and construction management services. The 150,000 tonne facility, which will operate in water depths of up to 400 meters, is scheduled to produce first oil in 2006. It will process up to 100,000 barrels of oil per day and have a storage capacity of up to one million barrels. The FPSO's double hull, based on a new build Suezmax type trading tanker specially modified for deepwater operations, is currently under construction at Samsung Heavy Industries, of South Korea.
