Woodside awards Browse LNG design contracts

Woodside revealed that the Browse LNG development has entered the basis of design phases where Woodside will determine the major design parameters that would enable the optimal development of the offshore gas fields and the onshore facilities south of James Price Point in Western Australia. 

Woodside has awarded two contracts for the onshore component of the Basis of Design: one to Bechtel Oil, Gas and Chemical Inc. and the other to KBR.

The proposed onshore LNG facility includes a 12 million tons per annum liquefaction plant, as well as the associated infrastructure and marine facilities. 

The offshore component of the study have been awarded to a JV of Worley Parsons and Granherne for the offshore facilities and JP Kenny for the subsea equipment and pipelines. 

The Browse natural gas fields include the Torosa, Brecknock and Calliance discoveries, which contain a combined resource of 14 trillion cubic feet of dry gas and 370 million barrels of condensate.

This phase will be followed by the Front End Engineering and Design (FEED) in 2011, which should allow for a final investment decision by the middle of 2012.
