Shell picks Crux-to-Prelude FEED partners

07 Feb 2019 3:04 PM | Sonia Harvey (Administrator)

SHELL has chosen Wood and KBR to perform front-end engineering and design for the Crux field development and tieback to the floating LNG vessel the Prelude in the Brose Basin 475 kilometres northwest of Broome. 

Crux is 160 kilometres northeast of the Prelude field in the Browse Basin and has long been chosen by Shell and partners Seven Group Holdings and Osaka Gas as the primary source of backfill.  

The proposal comprises a not-normally-manned platform that will operate five production wells in 165m deep water that will be tied back to the FLNG vessel with a 165km pipeline.  

The facilities will dry the gas and export it via a new subsea pipeline. 

Wood and KBR will deliver the services over 18 months, with teams based in Perth, with support from Wood's Kuala Lumpur regional base.  

The teams will provide a single integrated FEED for the Crux topsides, jacket, export pipeline and subsea pipeline end manifold.  

"This contract win to deliver the next generation of offshore facilities for Shell Australia demonstrates our unrivalled subsea pipeline expertise and offshore engineering capabilities," Wood chief executive Robin Watson said.  

"Wood has extensive experience in delivering technically complex subsea engineering projects in Western Australia. We are committed to expanding our portfolio in the region, developing local content by investing in industry talent, resources and supply chain." 

"KBR is committed to adding value to our customers. That's why we are delighted to partner with Wood to bring together two industry leaders to deliver one world-class complimentary team whilst continuing our long relationship with Shell and Perth, Australia," KBR president and CEO Stuart Bradie said.
