SBM Offshore wins Australian FEED deal from Technip

SBM Offshore announced today that it has been awarded a new contract from Technip for the front-end engineering and design (FEED) for three large-scale turret mooring systems for the proposed Browse FLNG development in Australia.

The contract covers the FEED elements of the proposed Browse turret work, of a similar design to the Shell Prelude FLNG turret that SBM Offshore was awarded in 2011.

The proposed Browse project is operated by Woodside Energy and located 425km north of Broome, Western Australia. It is based on three FLNG facilities to develop the Brecknock, Calliance and Torosa fields in the Browse Basin and still subject to a final investment decision, which is expected in the second half of next year.
