PERTH, Australia – Apache has awarded GE Oil & Gas (NYSE:GE) a $150-million contract for subsea equipment for the Julimar development offshore Western Australia. GE will be responsible for project management, engineering and procurement of the subsea equipment for Julimar.
The GE equipment for the Julimar includes subsea manifolds, well systems, and integrated subsea and topside control systems. Shipments will begin in June 2013 with installation starting in 4Q 2013.
“Field conditions for the Julimar project dictate the use of large-bore equipment with high pressure and temperature requirements,” said David Leslie, regional leader for Australia of GE Oil & Gas.
The Apache-operated Julimar Development Project is a joint venture between Apache (65%) and Kuwait Foreign Petroleum Exploration Co. (35%). The project will supply raw gas from the Julimar and Brunello gas fields to the Chevron-operated Wheatstone LNG Project.
