Woodside awards SNE FEED contract to OneSubsea, Schlumberger and Subsea 7

An alliance of OneSubsea, Schlumberger and Subsea 7 has been awarded a contract by Australia’s Woodside for front-end engineering design (FEED) activities at the SNE development, offshore Senegal.

The FEED work involves finalising the costs and technical definition for the development to enable a final investment decision, which Woodside has targeted for mid-2019.

Peter Coleman, CEO of Woodaide, commented: “We plan to progress the SNE development towards the earliest possible commercialisation of the discovered resources. Completing FEED activities will be a key enabler of a final investment decision.”

Woodside plans to award further FEED contracts early 2019.

The SNE development concept is a stand-alone FPSO facility with supporting subsea infrastructure. It will be designed to allow further development at SNE, including options for gas export to shore and for future subsea tiebacks from other reservoirs and fields. Phase 1 of the developments targeting 230 MMbbl of oil resources.
