PARIS – Chevron Australia has awarded Technip a €245-million ($322-million) contract for subsea facilities for the Wheatstone project.

This involves development of the Wheatstone and Iago fields in the Carnarvon basin offshore Northwest Australia.

Technip’s scope includes project management; design, fabrication, and installation of subsea isolation valve; production tee protection structures; spools and jumpers; transport and installation of manifold, foundation structures and pipeline termination structures; and supply and installation of 41 km (25 mi) of umbilicals.

The company’s center in Perth, Australia, will manage the overall project. Vessels to be deployed for the offshore campaign will include the Deep Orient and Global 1201, with completion scheduled in 2015.

The Wheatstone onshore facilities will be at Ashburton North, 12 km (7.4 mi) west of Onslow. The project is a joint venture between operator Chevron, Apache, Kufpet, Shell, and Kyushu Electric Power Co. Initially two LNG trains will be constructed with a combined capacity of 8.9 MM metric tons/yr (9.8 MM tons/yr), along with a domestic gas plant.
