SBM Offshore Bags Browse FLNG Turret FEED Contract

France’s Technip SA has awarded the Dutch supplier of floating oil platforms SBM Offshore the Front-End Engineering and Design (FEED) contract for three large-scale turret mooring systems associated with the proposed Browse Floating Liquefied Natural Gas (FLNG) Development in Australia.

The contract awarded to SBM Offshore covers the FEED elements of the proposed Browse FLNG Development’s turret work. The three turrets are expected to be designs similar to and slightly larger in size than the Shell Prelude FLNG turret that SBM Offshore was awarded in 2011, and whose last module was recently delivered from the construction yard in Dubai. Integration with the Prelude facility in Korea is currently ongoing.

The Browse project will incorporate the lessons learned by Shell, Technip Samsung Consortium and SBM Offshore in the design and construction of Shell’s Prelude FLNG project in order to maximize efficiencies in replicating the Prelude FLNG solutions for the three Browse FLNG facilities.

The proposed Browse project, operated by Woodside Energy Ltd., is located 425 kilometers north of Broome in Western Australia. The project’s reference case is based on three FLNG facilities to develop the Brecknock, Calliance and Torosa fields in the Browse Basin and is subject to final investment decision targeted for the end of the FEED in the second half of 2016.
