Australian engineering company Worley has won a contract from Chevron’s unit in Australia to work on the $4 billion Jansz-Io compression project.
Under the contract, Worley said it would provide detailed engineering, design and construction management services for the Jansz-Io compression project’s power transmission and communication components.
The contract follows Worley’s completion of the pre-FEED and FEED phases of the project.
Also, Worley said it would execute the services from its Perth office with support from the firm’s global integrated delivery team.
The firm did not disclose the financial details of the contract.
The Jansz-Io gas field is located around 200 kilometers offshore the north-western coast of Western Australia.
Part of the original development plan for the Chevron-operated Gorgon LNG plant, the Jansz-Io compression project will use subsea compression technology to maintain long-term natural gas supply from the offshore field to the three existing LNG trains but also domestic gas plant on Barrow Island.
The Gorgon project is a joint venture between the Australian subsidiaries of Chevron (47.333 percent), ExxonMobil (25 percent), Shell (25 percent), Osaka Gas (1.25 percent), Tokyo Gas (1 percent) and JERA (0.417 percent).
