Wood Group has secured its second front-end engineering design (FEED) contract for the proposed Browse floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) Development offshore Western Australia.

Under the new contract with Woodside, effective immediately, Wood Group Kenny (WGK) will progress the configuration design of the flexible risers and umbilicals for the asset’s offshore gas-condensate fields - Brecknock, Calliance and Torosa.

Wood Group commenced a contract earlier this year for the subsea flowline FEED with Woodside for the development, located 300km from the Kimberly coast.

Bob MacDonald, CEO of Wood Group Kenny, said: “This second contract win further builds on Wood Group’s 30 year relationship with Woodside and our role in providing technical and engineering support for the Browse FLNG Development. The project presents deep water challenges, which Wood Group Kenny is well positioned to tackle.

“Our Perth-based workforce will assist with development of the configuration design of the flexible risers and umbilicals, following previous Browse FLNG riser conceptual studies carried out by Wood Group Kenny. This project also builds on our extensive riser expertise, including participation in the early designs for several other FLNG projects.”
