Wood and KBR win Crux FEED project

HOUSTON, /PRNewswire/ -- Wood and KBR, Inc.  have secured a new multimillion dollar contract to deliver integrated front-end engineering design (FEED) for Shell Australia's Crux project to build a not normally manned (NNM) platform and gas export pipeline located approximately 600km north of Broome, offshore Western Australia (WA).

The Crux facilities will be an important source of backfill gas supply to the Shell-operated Prelude floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility. The remotely operated, minimum facilities NNM platform concept for Crux will dry the gas and export the gas/condensate to Prelude via a new 160km multiphase gas pipeline. 

The services will be delivered over 18-months by Wood and KBR's engineering and project management teams in Perth, WA, supported by Wood's Kuala Lumpur resource base. The teams will provide a single integrated FEED for the Crux topsides, jacket, export pipeline and subsea pipeline end manifold (PLEM).

Wood and KBR bring together over 80 years of history working in the Australian energy industry combining their collective strengths in subsea engineering and offshore gas processing facilities.

Robin Watson, Wood's chief executive comments: "This contract win to deliver the next generation of offshore facilities for Shell Australia demonstrates our unrivalled subsea pipeline expertise and offshore engineering capabilities.

"Wood has extensive experience in delivering technically complex subsea engineering projects in Western Australia. We are committed to expanding our portfolio in the region, developing local content by investing in industry talent, resources and supply chain.

"Working alongside each other for more than 20 years, Wood and KBR provide a powerful combination, leveraging the experience of two tier one contractors."

Wood also provides specialist consultancy services for flexible riser integrity management to the Shell-operated Prelude FLNG facility. 

Stuart Bradie, KBR President and CEO, said: "KBR is committed to adding value to our customers.  That's why we are delighted to partner with Wood to bring together two industry leaders to deliver one world-class complimentary team whilst continuing our long relationship with Shell and Perth, Australia."

"This win builds on KBR's long offshore experience in Australia and reinforces our extensive global leadership position in unmanned offshore facilities."

By attending this webinar, you will learn the benefits of using a single-channel, Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) solution for applications above 9,000Hp with operating voltages from 11kV to 13.8kV. We will explore a VFD solution that does not require a step-up output transformer but still provides maximum control, environmental and motor flexibility to the end user. We will also discuss how to provide maximum reliability using power cell redundancy and the removal of water cooled components. The topics covered in the webinar include:
•A brief review of the multi-cell M2C topology
•A review of the physical implementation and the advantages it offers to the end user
•A presentation of the various implementations and ratings available for use on typical pump, compressor and fan applications.
