Houston (ots-PRNewswire) - FMC Southeast Asia Pte. Ltd., based in the Republic of Singapore, has been awarded a contract by Woodside Energy Limited for the supply of subsea production systems for the Echo/Yodel Development Project offshore the North West Shelf of Australia. Echo/Yodel consists of two subsea wells located in 140 meter water depth. Natural gas production from the wells will be transported to Woodside's Goodwyn "A" platform via pipeline.
The contract calls for the design, fabrication, and supply of two subsea production systems for high-rate gas wells. The scope of supply covers two FMC 5" x 2" 5000 psi working pressure subsea Christmas trees, subsea drilling systems and associated equipment.
