Woodside has awarded a front end engineering and design (FEED) contract to Wood Group Kenny (WGK) for its Greater Western Flank Phase 2 (GWF-2) development of the North West Shelf (NWS) project, offshore Western Australia.

WGK will provide engineering and procurement support services for the 16in GWF-2 corrosion-resistant alloy rigid flowline system, flowline end termination structures, inline tee assembly structures, mid-connection structure and subsea tie-in spools.

"The company will develop the flowline system prior to the final investment decision, planned to be announced in the second half of this year."

The GWF-2 development is part of the next phase of gas supply to the current NWS project infrastructure, following the Persephone project.

GWF-2 will develop the hydrocarbon resources of the Keast, Dockrell, Sculptor, Rankin, Lady Nora and Pemberton fields.

Wood Group Kenny Australia regional director Mark Linton said: "The award of the GWF-2 FEED contract continues the relationship that Wood Group Kenny has built with Woodside on previous projects including Pluto, Angel and the Trunkline System Expansion Project.

"Wood Group Kenny has extensive experience in the design of subsea tie-back flowline systems and has previously undertaken similar scopes of work for Woodside and other clients."

Wood Group PSN recently won a contract from Woodside to deliver engineering, procurement and construction management services for the Karratha gas plant life extension programme.

The company will also deliver modification and refurbishment services to Woodside’s production project group throughout its onshore and offshore assets.
