PARIS -- Chevron Australia has awarded Technip a front-end engineering design contract for the Wheatstone project’s offshore processing platform.

The upstream portion of the project comprises development of gas fields in the WA-17-R and WA-253-P permits in water depths of 70 m to 200 m (230 ft to 656 ft). Subsea gas gathering systems will transport production to the processing platform where gas and condensate will be dehydrated, dewatered, compressed, and exported through a 200-km (124-mi) export pipeline to the onshore gas plant in Ashburton North, Australia.

Technip’s operating centers in Perth, Kuala Lumpur, Houston, and Paris will contribute to the project, which is scheduled for completion by year-end 2010. The work involves selection of the optimum offshore configuration and development of the full FEED for the selected concept, including flow assurance of the associated flowlines and pipelines, the company says.
