MAN Energy Solutions has been granted a contract to support the FEED study of a subsea compression solution for the Chevron-operated Jansz-Io field in Western Australia.
“We’re very proud to work with our alliance partner Aker Solutions on the Jansz-Io field development project for Chevron Australia,” says Uwe Lauber, CEO of MAN Power Options. “Thanks to this project, we can prove the value and reliability of our subsea compression solution.”
Jansz-Io would be the first gasoline subject outdoors Norway the place the subsea compression expertise comes to use. It’s located around 200 kilometers off the Australian north-west coast at a water depth of roughly 1,350 m. Jansz-Io is a part of the Gorgon undertaking – one of many world’s most significant natural gas developments.
MAN Energy Solutions’ scope of work inside the front-end engineering and design (FEED) covers the technology of the subsea compressors, which will probably be used to take care of output as the reservoir pressure drops over time. Subsea compression options enhance the recovery of the gas more cost-effectively and with a smaller environmental footprint than conventional compressor systems which are sometimes put in on platforms above sea level.
“MAN’s subsea compression resolution has already confirmed its reliability and advantages for Equinor’s Åsgard gas field in Norway, the place the subsea compressors reached 50,000 hr of operation with practically no stops or interruptions in December 2018.
Primarily based on Barrow Island (Western Australia), the Gorgon venture features a liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility designed to supply 15.6 MM metric tons of LNG per 12 months. The subsea infrastructure may even be used to move the fuel from the Jansz-Io offshore discipline to Gorgon’s onshore services with its three LNG processing items. The mission additionally includes a home pure gasoline plant.
