Aker wins contract for Chevron Australia’s Jansz-Io field

Norwegian company Aker Solutions has secured a contract from Chevron Australia to support the delivery of a subsea compression system for the Jansz-Io field.

Norwegian company Aker Solutions has secured a contract from Chevron Australia to support the delivery of a subsea compression system for the Jansz-Io field.

Located around 200km offshore the north-west coast of Western Australia at about 1,350m below the surface, the Jansz-Io field forms a part of the Gorgon Project operated by Chevron Australia.

Under the first service order of the master contract, Aker will be responsible for front-end engineering and design (FEED) of a subsea compression station that will boost gas recovery from the Jansz-Io field.

The FEED work will also cover an unmanned power and control floater, as well as overall field system engineering services.

“We are excited to work with Chevron Australia on our compressor-technology to boost recovery at the Jansz-Io field.”

Aker Solutions CEO Luis Araujo said: “Aker Solutions has worked closely with its partners MAN Energy Solutions and ABB to reduce the size and cost of the compression system.

“We are excited to work with Chevron Australia on our compressor-technology to boost recovery at the Jansz-Io field.”

In 2015, Aker delivered the world’s first subsea compression system for Equinor’s Åsgard field located offshore Norway.

According to the company, compression will help maintain plateau gas production rates as reservoir pressure declines over time.

Placing of compressors on the seabed and near the wellheads will help improve recovery rates while reducing capital and operating costs.

Araujo further added: “Australia will be the first place outside of Norway to use the subsea compression technology.”
