Aker to provide subsea tech for Chevron’s Jansz-Io compression project

Norway’s Aker Solutions said on Friday it has won a contract to work on the Chevron-operated $4 billion Jansz-Io compression project offshore Western Australia.

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.

Under the contract, Aker would provide subsea compression technology for the project located offshore Western Australia. The firm has won a FEED contract for the same project back in 2019.

However, Aker and Chevron Australia remain in ongoing discussions to finalize the contract, the Norwegian engineer said on Friday.

Aker says the contract has a price tag of about 7 billion Norwegian crowns ($808 million).

Chevron and the Gorgon LNG joint venture participants took the final investment decision on the compression project last week.

A modification of the existing Gorgon development, J-IC will involve the construction and installation of a 27,000-tonne normally unattended floating field control station.

In addition, the work also includes installing approximately 6,500 tonnes of subsea compression infrastructure and a 135km submarine power cable linked to Barrow Island.

Chevron expects construction and installation activities to take about five years to complete.

J-IC follows the Gorgon Stage 2 project, which is nearing completion of the installation phase, to supply gas to the Gorgon plant from four new Jansz-Io but also seven new Gorgon wells.

The Chevron-operated 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).
