MAN nets Jansz-Io compression contract

Germany’s MAN Energy Solutions said it has won a contract to supply five subsea compression units for Chevron’s $4 billion Jansz-Io compression project off Western Australia.

Norway’s Aker Solutions, which secured a contract from Chevron Australia in July to provide subsea compression technology for the project, awarded the deal to MAN.

The Jansz-Io compression (J-IC) project will help gas recovery at the giant 15.6 mtpa Gorgon LNG project as the offshore field ages.

MAN says its scope of work for the Jansz-Io project comprises the supply of five subsea HOFIM compressor units, each with compressor frame size RB 45 with integrated MAN motor, size M43.

Moreover, three compressor systems will be installed into the subsea modules while two further will serve as spare units, according to MAN.

This contract follows several deals Chevron had awarded this year following the final investment decision on the project. This includes contracts to Aker Solutions, Baker Hughes, ABB, and Worley.

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).
