TechnipFMC Awarded Pluto Contract
TechnipFMC said it has been awarded a contract by Woodside to upgrade the Pluto Platform Offshore for water treatment, located offshore Western Australia.
The contract includes the engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning (EPCIC) of the Pluto Water Handling Module. This module, to be installed on the existing Pluto Alpha Gas Production Platform, will consist of facilities for water separation and treatment, together with upgraded power generation units.
Nello Uccelletti, President of TechnipFMC's Onshore/Offshore business, commented, "We are honored to be entrusted with the execution of this prestigious contract which is a testimonial to our long-term partnership with Woodside and our leadership in the Gas Monetization industry. This award is one of our strategic 'early engagement' achievements, based on the optimized design developed by TechnipFMC during the tendering phase."
The Pluto offshore facility is located approximately 190 kilometers off Karratha, in Western Australia's north-west. The produced gas from the offshore facility is transferred through an existing pipeline to Woodside’s Pluto LNG Onshore plant.
The production license is held by Woodside (Operator and 90 percent), Kansai Electric (5 percent) and Tokyo Gas (TOG.BE) (5 percent).
