Three international players are among those to have won work for Woodside Petroleum’s Greater Enfield oil project since it was given the go ahead in the middle of last year.

Paris-based engineering firm Technip won a contract it said was in the range of €250 million-€500 million ($A350m to $A700m) for subsea engineering, procurement and construction services at the $US1.9 billion (A$2.5 billion) project.

OneSubsea, headquartered in Texas, won a $300 million engineering, procurement and construction contract, while Singaporean company Keppel Corporation scored $120 million of upgrade work for the floating oil vessel refitted for that field.

That brought the total work won by international players at Enfield to more than $800 million.

GR Engineering subsidiary Upstream Production Solutions was involved in two major deals – a $50 million well site contract at Origin Energy’s Australia Pacific LNG, and a $90 million deal for providing a floating storage and offloading facility for Northern Oil & Gas at the Laminaria and Corallina fields.

Victoria Park-based Monadelphous was another to feature, winning a $US250 million engineering, procurement and construction contract in a joint venture with Jacobs Engineering for work at Oil Search’s Papua New Guinea operation in February.

Monadelphous also won maintenance work for Wheatstone as part of a $120 million series of contracts in February, while it additionally secured a deal for services at the Ichthys unloading jetty, announced in a package of $140 million.

Despite the project nearing completion, the Inpex-led Ichthys was a source of work for several other contractors.

For example, Netherlands-headquartered Fugro signed a deal of undisclosed value in January to work on Ichthys’s 890-kilometre subsea gas pipeline.

Australian players getting in on the action included Sparrows Group for crane work and Rams for maintenance.

A number of contracts were ended early.

That included two at Ichthys, between Cimic and JKC, and Kawasaki Heavy Industries and Laing O’Rourke, and a further at the Chevron Gorgon project, for Toxfree Solutions.
