Worley wins Jansz-Io Compression contract with Chevron
Chevron has selected Australian engineering firm Worley to provide engineering and construction management services to the US giant’s recently sanctioned Jansz-Io Compression (J-IC) project off Western Australia.
Worely did not disclose the value of the contract, but the contractor said he would provide detailed engineering, design and construction management services for the power transmission and communication components of Project J -IC.
The agreement follows Worley’s completion of the pre-FEED and FEED phases of the project. Services will be provided by the Worley office in Perth with the support of the Worley Global Integrated Delivery team.
Baker Hughes will supply subsea compression manifold technology for J-IC.
Aker Solutions will supply the all-electric subsea gas compression system, and ABB last week won an approximately $ 120 million contract to supply the entire electrical power system (EPS ).
Chevron-led Gorgon LNG in Australia announced last month that it will make a $ 4 billion investment in the development of Jansz-Io compression that will provide Asian customers with gas for decades. . Significantly, the subsea compression project, necessary to move gas from deep seas to shore, will be the first of its kind outside of Norway.
Chevron said the Jansz-Io Compression (J-IC) project marks the U.S. giant’s largest capital investment in Australia since the approval of Gorgon Stage 2 in 2018.
The project, which is expected to last five years, will improve gas recovery from offshore wells at the Jansz-Io field and help keep the liquefied natural gas (LNG) export plant at three 15.6 million tonnes per train. year filled for decades.
