GDF Suez has awarded an upstream pre-front end engineering and design (pre-FEED) study contract to KBR subsidiary Granherne for Bonaparte Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) project in Australia.
The LNG project is a proposed floating liquefaction plant to be located in the Bonaparte basin, Northern Territory.
The project, being developed through a joint venture between GDF Suez and Santos Ltd, has a planned LNG capacity of two million tonnes per annum (mtpa).
Granherne will provide a single integrated service for the upstream pre-FEED, comprising various disciplines such as subsea engineering, field development planning, process, safety engineering and flow assurance.
The project will be managed by Granherne’s Asia Pacific regional office in Perth.
Granherne, a wholly owned subsidiary of KBR, is a front-end engineering consultancy for onshore, offshore and deepwater oil and gas developments.
