WOODSIDE and its partners on the Greater Western Flank phase 2 project (GWF-2) have awarded a $180 million contract to FMC Technologies for subsea production systems.

Among the subsea assets to be designed, manufactured and supplied under the contract are subsea production trees, wellheads, manifolds, subsea and topside controls, and flowline connection systems, FMC said in an announcement.

Deliveries are expected to begin in 2016 and continue through 2018, with the GWF-2 project expected to begin production in 2019.

FMC subsea technologies senior vice president of subsea technologies Tore Halvorsen said the development would assist with the commercialisation of the project’s gas reserves, the fourth major gas development on the North West Shelf in the last seven years.

“Our continued collaboration on the North West Shelf Project further solidifies the 20 year relationship between FMC Technologies and Woodside,” he said.
