FMC Technologies, Inc. announced that it signed an agreement with Woodside for the design, manufacture and supply of subsea production systems for the Greater Western Flank Phase 2 (GWF-2) Project as part of the North West Shelf (NWS) Project in Western Australia. The contract is valued at approximately $180 million for FMC Technologies and includes: subsea production trees, wellheads, manifolds, subsea and topside controls, and flowline connection systems. Deliveries are expected to begin in 2016 and continue through 2018.
"Our continued collaboration on the North West Shelf Project further solidifies the 20-year relationship between FMC Technologies and Woodside," said Tore Halvorsen, Senior Vice President, Subsea Technologies. "This development assists with the timely and efficient commercialization of the project's gas reserves."
The GWF-2 Project is the fourth major gas development for the NWS Project in the last seven years and is expected to develop 1.6 trillion cubic feet of raw gas from its combined six fields using subsea infrastructure and 21.7 miles (35 kilometers) of 16 inch pipeline connecting to the existing Goodwyn A platform.
The GWF-2 Project is expected to begin production in 2019.
