The Jansz-Io gas field is located around 200 km off the north-western coast of Western Australia, at water depths of approximately 1400 m. The field is a part of the Chevron-operated Gorgon facility, one of the world's largest natural gas developments. As the reservoir pressure of the Jansz-Io field declines after years of production, compression infrastructure is required to enhance the recoverability of the field.
The services are carried out by the local Australian subsidiary, SPIE Oil & Gas Services Pty Ltd, and cover all systems integration engineering associated with the subsea gas compression system and field control station along with brownfield modifications required on the existing Gorgon facilities. The engineering services will be also executed in multiple global centres with SPIE's embedded personnel working closely with EPC design teams.
Work has already commenced on the project.
"We are very pleased to have been selected for this complex and one-of-a-kind project. It further solidifies our position as a global main automation contractor of choice, for major operators worldwide. We look forward to delivering our specialist engineering services that leverage off our global reach in these challenging times," commented Christophe Bernhart, Managing Director of SPIE Oil & Gas Services.
The Chevron-operated Gorgon Project is a joint venture between the Australian subsidiaries of Chevron (47.333%), ExxonMobil (25%), Shell (25%), Osaka Gas (1.25%), Tokyo Gas (1%) and JERA (0.417%).
