Oilfield services firm TechnipFMC has been awarded a contract by Woodside to upgrade the Pluto platform for water treatment, located offshore Western Australia.
The contract includes the engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning (EPCIC) of the Pluto Water Handling Module, TechnipFMC said on Wednesday.
TechnipFMC also said that this module, to be installed on the existing Pluto Alpha gas production platform, will consist of facilities for water separation and treatment, together with upgraded power generation units.
Nello Uccelletti, President of TechnipFMC’s Onshore/Offshore business, commented: “We are honored to be entrusted with the execution of this prestigious contract which is a testimonial to our long-term partnership with Woodside and our leadership in the Gas Monetization industry.”
The Pluto offshore facility is located approximately 190 kilometers off Karratha, in Western Australia’s north-west. The produced gas from the offshore facility is transferred through an existing pipeline to Woodside’s Pluto LNG Onshore plant.
The production license is held by Woodside (operator and 90%), Kansai Electric (5%) and Tokyo Gas (5%).
