Wood EPCm contract extended by Australia’s Woodside Energy


Australian oil and gas major Woodside Energy (Woodside) has awarded a contract extension and front-end engineering design (FEED) work to the UK’s John Wood Group (Wood).

Woodside has extended Wood’s brownfield engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCm) contract until October 2025.

The EPCm contract is aimed at supporting the operations of the North West Shelf (NWS) project in Australia.

The FEED work is for the Goodwyn Alpha Low-Low Pressure project, which is located off the coast of Western Australia.

According to the terms of the FEED contract, Wood’s teams in Perth will deliver engineering design to include the extra compression necessary for greater production, along with related alterations to current facilities.

The Goodwyn Alpha development is part of the NWS project.

Woodside is the operator of the NWS Project and counts BP, Chevron, Mitsubishi, Mitsui and Shell as its partners in the project.

Wood president of operations in Asia-Pacific Ralph Ellis said: “Our long-term relationship with Woodside demonstrates the strength and reliability of Wood’s operational delivery in Australia.

“It is also a great example of our technical expertise, commitment to performance excellence and relentless focus on safe operations across our business.”

Earlier this month, energy giant Shell selected Wood to offer engineering, procurement, consulting and project management services for its greenfield and brownfield projects across the globe.

Wood’s engineering and consulting staff in Australia, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, North America and South East Asia will offer the services to Shell.
