TechnipFMC said it has been awarded a contract by Australian LNG operator Woodside to upgrade the Pluto platform 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, TechnipFMC said in its statement.
The Pluto offshore facility is located about 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%), Kansai Electric (5%) and Tokyo Gas (5%).
