Wood Group Kenny wins $8m Equus contract

International subsea engineering company Wood Group Kenny has won an $8 million front end engineering and design (FEED) contract for the subsea development of Hess Exploration’s Equus offshore deepwater gas project in the Northern Carnarvon Basin.

Work will commence immediately and is expected to take 12 months, executed from a dedicated project engineering office in Perth.

Under the contract, Wood Group Kenny will deliver a work scope that includes flow assurance, subsea engineering, flowlines, export pipeline and tie-ins design, material selection and integrity management.

The company has also won FEED contracts for Browse and Julimar projects.

Wood Group Kenny regional director Phil Brown said Equus was a complex development and one of the key challenges would be engineering the export pipeline that is to be routed up the North West Shelf escarpment.

“We have a team of some of the best subsea engineers in the business though and look forward to working with Hess to devise fit-for-purpose subsea engineering solutions.”
