PARIS POSCO International has awarded DORIS Engineering and Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) a front-end engineering design (FEED) contract for the Shwe Phase 3 project offshore Myanmar.

The scope includes a new LP compression platform bridge-connected to the existing SHP (drilling, central production and accommodation platform).

The Shwe project is a multiple gas-condensate field integrated development in blocks A-1 and A-3 in the Bay of Bengal. The development area consists of the central Shwe field, the northern Shwe Phyu field, and the southerly Mya field.

The central Shwe field is in about 140 m (459 ft) water depth, with the SHP in a water depth of 111 m (364 ft). Phase 3 calls for LP compression to support ongoing production from the existing fields.

In 2009, DORIS Engineering and HHI cooperated for Phase 1, which consisted of the SHP platform, the subsea production system for Mya North, infield and export pipelines, and an onshore gas terminal.

The FEED design competition of full field was won by HHI and DORIS. The EPCIC was then performed by HHI, with detailed engineering of the SHP (25,000 tons topsides deck and 20,000 tons jacket) carried out by DORIS in 2010.
