IRVING, Texas – Woodside has awarded Fluor Corp. the front-end engineering and design work for the Browse basin LNG development offshore Western Australia.

Fluor will address the central gas processing facility including steel jackets, compression platform, and utilities accommodation platform. Fluor has teamed with McDermott International Inc. on the steel jackets and float-over installation.

Fluor’s work is one part of the overall Browse LNG Development that includes three TLPs, a central processing facility, more than 1,200 km (745 mi) of subsea pipeline infrastructure, and an onshore three-train LNG facility at the Western Australian Government’s Browse LNG Precinct.

When completed, Woodside will process gas and condensate from three fields in the Browse basin. The Browse fields are estimated to contain a combined contingent resource of 13.3 tcf of dry gas and 360 MMbbl of condensate.
