Oil services company Aibel in Singapore has been awarded the E&P contract for modifications on Woodside Energy’s Ngujima-Yin floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) unit, offshore Western Australia.
The FPSO is part of Woodside’s Greater Enfield Project which was recently approved for development.
Greater Enfield is located 60 km off Exmouth in Western Australia. The reserves in the area will be produced via a 31 km subsea tie-back to the Ngujima-Yin FPSO, located over the Vincent oil field.
According to Aibel’s statement on Friday, the FPSO will undergo modifications to the topsides, hull and turret, along with installation of a new Custom Water Flood module. The contract includes both detailed marine and topsides engineering and procurement services as well as commissioning services, the company noted.
At the peak the Greater Enfield Project will engage more than 100 employees. The work will be executed by Aibel’s office in Singapore. The contract is expected to start in July this year and is presently targeted to be completed January 2019.
In September 2015, Aibel was also a FEED contract in connection with the subsea tie back to the Ngujima-Yin FPSO. Aibel’s scope of work included management, engineering and provision of procurement services for FEED.
