Technip Samsung Consortium gets Shell, Woodside FLNG project contracts

PARIS, FRANCE: Technip Samsung Consortium was awarded two contracts by Shell for the Browse floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) project in Australia, operated by Woodside.

The Browse project covers the realization and installation of three FLNG units to develop the Brecknock, Calliance and Torosa fields in the Browse basin, 425 kilometre north of Broome, western Australia. The Browse project will capitalize on Shell’s FLNG experience, as well as on Woodside’s offshore and subsea development expertise.

The Browse joint venture participants are Woodside Browse Pty Ltd, Shell Australia Pty Ltd, BP Developments Australia Pty Ltd, Japan Australia LNG (MIMI Browse) Pty Ltd and PetroChina International Investment (Australia) Pty Ltd, Technip said.

The first contract awarded to the Technip Samsung Consortium covers the front-end engineering design (FEED) elements of the Browse FLNG project. This contract was immediately novated by Shell to Woodside as operator, the company said.

The second contract covers the engineering, procurement, construction and installation of the three FLNG units of the Browse project. This contract is subject to the final investment decision from the client at the end of the FEED, it said.

“We are proud to have been awarded this contract which will associate the know-how and expertise gained on Prelude FLNG by our teams, while reinforcing our partnership with Samsung Heavy Industries,” said Nicoletta Giadrossi, president, western Europe, Africa and India regions, Technip.

“While FLNG represents a breakthrough in the industry, Technip’s teams worldwide have played a key role in this technology since its inception by bringing together our unique combination of expertise - not only in floating units, but also in subsea developments and liquefaction facilities. Today, we are glad to continue to strengthen our relationship with Shell and Woodside,” said Nello Uccelletti, president, onshore/offshore, Technip.
