Houston-based FMC Technologies signed an agreement with Woodside for the design, manufacture and supply of subsea production systems for the Greater Western Flank Phase 2 Project as part of the North West Shelf Project in Western Australia.
The $180 million contract includes subsea production trees, wellheads, manifolds, subsea and topside controls and flowline connection systems.
According to a press release, deliveries are expected to begin in 2016 and continue through 2018.
“Our continued collaboration on the North West Shelf Project further solidifies the 20-year relationship between FMC Technologies and Woodside,” said Tore Halvorsen, Senior Vice President, Subsea Technologies. “This development assists with the timely and efficient commercialization of the project’s gas reserves.”
The GWF-2 Project is the fourth major gas development for the NWS Project in the past seven years. The project concept consists of eight production wells. It is expected to develop 1.6 trillion cubic feet of raw gas from its combined six hydrocarbon fields using subsea infrastructure and 21.7 miles of 16 inch pipeline connecting to the existing Goodwyn A platform.
The project is scheduled to begin production in 2019.
FMC Technologies is a global provider of equipment and services for the energy industry.
Woodside is an Australian oil and gas company recognized for exploration, development, production and supplies. Woodside holds a one-sixth share in the North West Shelf Venture, Australia’s largest resource development project.
