Technology provider TechnipFMC has announced the awarding of a significant integrated engineering, procurement, construction and installation (iEPCI) contract by long-term client Woodside Energy in Australia.

Under the deal, confirmed on Monday, the company will design, manufacture, and install the subsea production system, flexible pipe, and umbilicals for the Xena Infill well (XNA03). This will support ongoing production from the Pluto LNG Project. 

Continued collaboration

TechnipFMC says the contract award follows an integrated front-end engineering design (iFEED) study. The project will use its Subsea 2.0 production system. 

Xena Phase 3 will be tied back to existing subsea infrastructure previously supplied by TechnipFMC, the company explained.

Jonathan Landes, President, Subsea at TechnipFMC, said his company was “proud to be delivering a fully integrated project from concept to execution”.

Technology in action

He continued: “This project will help our long-term client meet their objectives, demonstrating the favourable impact iFEED, iEPCI, and Subsea 2.0 can have on project economics.”

Pluto LNG processes gas from the Pluto and Xena gas fields offshore Western Australia, according to the Woodside Energy website. Gas is piped through a 180km trunkline to a single onshore LNG-processing train.

Woodside said it is developing a brownfield expansion of Pluto LNG through the construction of a second gas processing train. Pluto Train 2 will have a capacity of about 5 MMtpa.

Impactful deal

The contract is the latest call-off on the framework agreement between Woodside Energy and TechnipFMC, a leading technology provider to the traditional and new energy industries, delivering fully integrated projects, products, and services.

Although TechnipFMC didn’t reveal the contact value, it said that a “significant” contract for the company is valued between $75 million and $250 million. This award will be included in inbound orders in the second quarter of 2024.
