Wood Group to work on ConocoPhillips LNG installations in Australia

Wood Group is to provide brownfield engineering services to two of ConocoPhillips’ LNG facilities in Australia under a new multi-year contract.

The duration and value of the contract was not disclosed, but Wood Group said work would begin right away.

The UK-headquartered engineering company will work on the Bayu-Undan field, located south west of Timor-Leste, and the Darwin LNG plant at Wickham Point, Darwin.

Natural gas is supplied from the field to the Darwin plant via a 502-kilometre pipeline. The plant liquefies the gas into LNG, which is sold and exported to Tokyo Electric and Tokyo Gas in Japan. ConocoPhillips says an average of one cargo per week has been shipped to its customers from the terminal since it was commissioned in 2006.

Wood Group’s contract also covers engineering work on floating, storage and offloading (FSO) facilities and subsea pipelines, which will be conducted by a Wood Group Kenny team based in Perth.

“This win is a privileged addition to our existing brownfield modifications capabilities, particularly across our growing LNG activities in Australia and Asia Pacific.  To deliver this contract, we are delighted to be able to harness the collaborative expertise of Wood Group PSN in brownfield services and Wood Group Kenny in subsea engineering,” Andrew Stewart, managing director of Wood Group PSN Australia & Asia Pacific, said in a release.
