Wood has been awarded a contract by Woodside on Aug. 9 to support the execution of concept definition for the proposed Scarborough upstream development, offshore Western Australia.
Secured under a long-standing master services agreement, this latest contract extends Wood’s 35-year relationship with Woodside across their asset portfolio.
Concept definition level engineering associated with the floating production unit, subsea umbilicals, risers and flowlines, flow assurance and overall system integration of the upstream development, will be delivered by Wood’s specialist field development studies team in Houston, Texas and Perth, Australia.
“The proposed development of the Scarborough area assets will maximize value and recoverable resource and we are excited to be chosen to work with Woodside on this significant opportunity, demonstrating our trusted relationship and strong track record of consistent, quality delivery,” Bob MacDonald, CEO of Wood’s Specialist Technical Solutions, said.
Wood has also supported Woodside’s Greater Western Flank (GWF-2) project on Australia’s North West Shelf from concept development to execution, providing detailed design, procurement activities and engineering support for the subsea pipeline during fabrication and construction.
Earlier this year, the company awarded Wood three contracts to perform subsea and flow assurance concept studies supporting the proposed SNE Field development in the Rufisque, Sangomar and Sangomar deep offshore blocks located offshore Senegal.
