Chevron Australia Pty Ltd. has awarded Baker Hughes a contract to deliver subsea compression manifold technology for the Jansz-Io Compression (J-IC) project offshore West Australia, Baker Hughes announced Aug. 10.

Using its Subsea Connect early engagement approach, Baker Hughes will provide Chevron with a subsea compression manifold structure (SCMS) including module and foundation, as well as the latest optimized version of its horizontal clamp connector system and subsea controls for the manifold structure.

Baker Hughes’ Subsea Connect business model brings together life-of-field expertise and technical capability, enabling customers to accelerate time to production, reduce total cost of ownership and maximize recovery over the life of the project.

“We continue to transform the core of our subsea business by delivering reliable life-of-field solutions designed to drive efficiency and productivity,” said Graham Gillies, vice president of Asia Pacific at Baker Hughes. “Our Subsea Connect business model has enabled early engagement, allowing us to combine the best of our technology with engineering and project management localization.”

The Jansz-Io gas field is located around 200 kms offshore the north-western coast of Western Australia, at water depths of approximately 1,400 m. The Jansz-Io field is a part of the Chevron-operated Gorgon natural gas facility, one of the world’s largest natural gas developments. Baker Hughes has previously provided 23 subsea trees, 12 subsea manifolds, 45 subsea structures and a subsea production control system for the Gorgon natural gas facility.

Chevron is the operator of Gorgon LNG and owns 47% of the project. Its partners are Exxon Mobil Corp., Royal Dutch Shell Plc, Osaka Gas, Tokyo Gas and JERA.
