Woodside awards field development contract

TechnipFMC has won an integrated engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) contract, which will see the company deliver the design, manufacture, delivery and installation of subsea equipment, including the subsea production system, flexible flowlines and umbilicals.

Pyxis and Xena are located in production licence WA-34-L off the coast of Dampier, Western Australia and gas extracted from the fields will be used to support production at the nearby Pluto LNG Project.

The contract is valued between $75 million and $250 million and is the first in a five-year EPCI agreement between Woodside and TechnipFMC that allows collaborative development of projects through early engagement and employment of TechnipFMC’s integrated execution solutions.

TechnipFMC President Subsea Arnaud Piéton said the company was happy to have signed the five-year agreement with Woodside.

“This EPCI contract combines our integrated subsea solution with our Subsea 2.0 products and illustrates TechnipFMC’s complete offering,” he said.

“We value our long-term, collaborative relationship with Woodside and are committed to bring the best in the execution of this project.”

Drilling in the fields is expected to commence in the first quarter of 2020.

Woodside operates Pluto LNG with a 90 per cent interest, with Kansai Electric and Tokyo Gas each holding 5 per cent.
