Fluor wins FEED contract for Browse LNG development

Engineering, procurement, construction and maintenance company Fluor has announced that its Fluor Offshore Solutions unit was awarded a front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract by Woodside for the Browse Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Development.

The Browse fields are located in the Browse Basin about 42km north of Broome off the western coast of Australia.

Fluor will be responsible for FEED services for the offshore central gas processing facility including the steel jackets, a compression platform and a utilities accommodation platform.

To design the steel jackets and float-over installation outlined in the contract, which was signed in the fourth quarter of 2010 for an undisclosed value, the Texas-based company has teamed with McDermott International.
