SNC-Lavalin has been appointed to provide front-end engineering design (FEED) services in a Design Competition for the development of Stage 2 in the existing Waitsia Gas Field by joint venture partners AWE Limited and Origin Energy Developments Pty Ltd.

SNC-Lavalin’s scope of work includes providing FEED for the design competition for Waitsia Stage 2 facilities, including a gas plant capable of processing 100 TJ/d, CO2 extraction, collection hubs and flow lines to the existing plant located approximately 350km north of Perth in Western Australia.

The front-end engineering design competition will commence immediately and is expected to be completed by the end of this year.

”We are very pleased to have been selected to participate in this important project which will provide a significant boost of gas to the Western Australian domestic market,” said Ian Prescott, Senior Vice President, Oil & Gas, Asia Pacific.

“This project will allow us to demonstrate our world class expertise in Production and Processing Solutions, which is further strengthened by our significant presence in Australia.”
