Technip has secured a subsea contract by Chevron Australia for the €245m Wheatstone project in the Carnarvon Basin, offshore North Western Australia.

Wheatstone project covers the development of the Wheatstone and Iago fields, where the initial phase will include building two liquefied natural gas trains with a combined capacity of 8.9 million ton per annum and a domestic gas plant.

The contract includes project management, design, fabrication and installation of subsea isolation valve, production tee protection structures, spools and jumpers; transport and installation of manifold, foundation structures and pipeline termination structures and installation of 41km of umbilicals.

Technip’s operating center in Perth, Australia will manage the overall project, with engineering to commence immediately.

Vessels from the Technip fleet will be used for the offshore campaign, including the Deep Orient and Global 1201, with completion scheduled in 2015.

The Chevron-operated Wheatstone Project is a joint venture between the Australian subsidiaries of Chevron, Apache, Kuwait Foreign Petroleum Exploration Company, Shell and Kyushu Electric Power Company.
