Chevron U.S.A. Inc. has awarded Worley an engineering and procurement services contract on April 19 to provide brownfield modification services for one of its deepwater production facilities located in the Gulf of Mexico.
Under the contract, Worley will provide engineering and design services for the integration and subsea tieback of the Ballymore oil and gas field. Worley is supporting both the subsea and topsides designs and will also provide procurement services for topsides.
The topsides services and project management will be executed by Worley’s U.S. Gulf Coast team, with Intecsea executing the subsea portion of the project. Intecsea is part of Worley’s Advisian consulting business and is a world leader in subsea systems, offshore pipelines, floating systems and overall field development. Support will also be provided by Worley’s global integrated delivery office in India.
“As a global professional services company headquartered in Australia, we look forward to helping Chevron meet the world’s changing energy needs and continuing Worley’s longstanding global relationship with Chevron,” Chris Ashton, CEO of Worley, said.
It’s too soon to gauge the price impact on fuel or the data impact to Colonial Pipeline after a cyberattack forced its systems offline, experts say.
Oil prices are expected this week to drift sideways with an upward bias, while product prices in the Atlantic Basin will move upward until the Colonial Pipeline is back in service, says Stratas Advisors in its latest forecast.
Nearly half of the fuel consumed in the eastern U.S. passes through the Colonial network.
