Technip awards Browse turret mooring FEED to SBM Offshore

Offshore staff

AMSTERDAM, the Netherlands Technip has contracted SBM Offshore for the front-end engineering and design (FEED) of three turret mooring systems for use with the Browse LNG development offshore Australia.

The three, large-scale turrets are expected to be designs similar to and slightly larger in size than the Shell Prelude FLNG turret that SBM Offshore was awarded in 2011 and whose last module was recently successfully delivered from the construction yard in Dubai. Integration with the Prelude facility in Korea is currently ongoing.

The proposed Browse project, operated by Woodside Energy Ltd., is 425 km (264 mi) north of Broome in Western Australia. The project’s reference case is based on three FLNG facilities to develop the Brecknock, Calliance, and Torosa fields in the Browse basin and is subject to final investment decision targeted for the end of the FEED in the second half of 2016.
