HOUSTON, US: Wood and KBR Inc have secured a new multimillion dollar contract to deliver integrated front-end engineering design (FEED) for Shell Australia's Crux project to build a not normally manned (NNM) platform and gas export pipeline located approximately 600 km north of Broome, offshore Western Australia (WA).

The Crux facilities will be an important source of backfill gas supply to the Shell-operated Prelude floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility. The remotely operated, minimum facilities NNM platform concept for Crux will dry the gas and export the gas/condensate to Prelude via a new 160 km multiphase . 

The services will be delivered over 18-months by Wood and KBR's engineering and project management teams in Perth, WA, supported by Wood's Kuala Lumpur resource base. The teams will provide a single integrated FEED for the Crux topsides, jacket, export pipeline and subsea pipeline end manifold (PLEM).

"This contract win to deliver the next generation of offshore facilities for Shell Australia demonstrates our unrivalled subsea pipeline expertise and offshore engineering capabilities. Wood has extensive experience in delivering technically complex subsea engineering projects in Western Australia. We are committed to expanding our portfolio in the region, developing local content by investing in industry talent, resources and supply chain. Working alongside each other for more than 20 years, Wood and KBR provide a powerful combination, leveraging the experience of two tier one contractors,” said Robin Watson, chief executive Wood.

Wood also provides specialist consultancy services for flexible riser integrity management to the Shell-operated Prelude FLNG facility. 

"KBR is committed to adding value to our customers. That's why we are delighted to partner with Wood to bring together two industry leaders to deliver one world-class complimentary team whilst continuing our long relationship with Shell and Perth, Australia. This win builds on KBR's long offshore experience in Australia and reinforces our extensive global leadership position in unmanned offshore facilities,” said Stuart Bradie, KBR President and CEO.
