A joint-venture between Clough and Amec Foster Wheeler has secured a services contract with ConocoPhillips for the Bayu-Undan field development in the Timor Sea, Australia.

Under the three-year contract, Clough AMEC will provide asset support, operations and maintenance services to the offshore field development.

The Bayu-Undan offshore field includes a central production and processing complex (CPP) consisting of two platforms, namely drilling, production and processing (DPP); and compression, utilities and quarters (CUQ).

"The Bayu-Undan gas-condensate field was discovered in 1995 and is located offshore in the Timor Sea."

It also comprises a floating, storage and offloading facility (FSO) located 2km from the CPP, as well as an un-manned wellhead platform (WP1) 7km east of the CPP.

The Bayu-Undan gas-condensate field was discovered in 1995 and is located offshore in the Timor Sea, within the joint petroleum development area (JPDA).

The field is 250km south-west of Suai in Timor-Leste, and 500km north-west of the northern territory in Australia.

Phase one of the Bayu-Undan field development began in 2004, with the construction of offshore facilities to produce and process condensate, propane and butane (LPGs).

Phase two was approved in the 2003 and amended the Bayu-Undan development plan, which was concluded in 2006.

Bayu-Undan’s phase three development is set to be completed in stages, with the first part commenced in 2014.

ConocoPhilips operates the field with a 57.2% stake, along with partners Eni (11%), Santos (11.5%), Inpex (11.3%) and Tokyo Electric Power and Tokyo Gas (9.2%).
