Chevron Australia awarded a front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract to MAN Energy Solutions for a subsea compression solution for the Jansz-Io liquefied natural gas (LNG) field.
The field is located about 200 kilometers off the northwest coast of Australia at a depth of 1350m and is part of the Gorgon project. Jansz-Io will be the first field outside of Norway to utilize subsea compression technology with booth gas recovery cost-effectiveness and reduces the environmental footprint of the operation compared to above installations that are above sea level. The infrastructure will also be used to transport gas from Jansz-Io to Gorgon’s onshore facilities.
Alexandre de Rougemont, Head of Sales Turbo Solutions at MAN Energy Solutions, said, “This is the direct result of the close collaboration between the Subsea Compression Alliance partners Aker Solutions and MAN Energy Solutions and our extensive expertise gathered together.”
MAN’s system at the Equinor Åsgard field in Norway reached fifty thousand hours of operation with little to no interruption in December 2018.
