Subsea 7 wins contract for Julimar field offshore Australia

Subsea 7 has been awarded a substantial contract by Woodside for phase 2 of the Julimar-Brunello project, located offshore Australia.

The contract, which is worth between $150 million (€136.2 million) and $300 million (€272.4 million), was awarded earlier this year, subject to final investment decision of the Julimar-Brunello joint venture participants Woodside and KUFPEC, which has now taken place.

The Julimar field is located approximately 200km offshore north-western Australia. The full scope of the contract will be to design, procure, install and commission a 22km, 18-inch corrosion resistant alloy gas transmission flowline and an umbilical system.

The offshore activities will be carried out in 2021 using Subsea 7’s reel-lay and heavy construction vessels.

“This contract with Woodside reflects what can be achieved with strong collaboration and early engagement,” commented Andy Woolgar, vice-president Australia and New Zealand at Subsea 7. “Our solution demonstrates the advantages of having a full range of installation and pipelay capabilities in Australia and illustrates how Subsea 7’s global technology portfolio allows us to deliver cost-effective solutions to our clients around the world.”
