Woodside Awards Browse LNG Development Contracts

The Browse LNG Development has now entered the Basis of Design phase, which determines the major design parameters for the project's offshore gas fields and onshore facilities in Western Australia.

Dual contracts for the Basis of Design have been awarded to Bechtel Australia and Kellogg Brown & Root for the onshore component. Contracts for the offshore components have been awarded to a joint venture of WorleyParsons and Select Granherne for the facilities scope and to J P Kenny for the subsea and pipelines scope.

The Basis of Design phase will be followed by Front End Engineering and Design in 2011 to enable a Final Investment Decision by mid-2012.
