BP unit awards pipeline contract for Tangguh LNG project

By OGJ editors

HOUSTON, June 12 -- BP PLC unit BP Berau Indonesia has awarded J.P. Kenny Group, a subsidiary of Wood Group, a front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract for the subsea pipelines that will link gas production off Indonesia with the Tangguh LNG plant being built in Irian Jaya Province, Indonesia. J.P. Kenny, in conjunction with local partner PT Supraco, will carry out the detailed design work for the pipelines in both Australia and Indonesia.

The project will entail the design of three subsea pipelines totaling 70 km that will transport untreated gas from Wiriagar and Vorwata gas fields, which lie in 95 m of water off Papua Province. BP will construct offshore gas production facilities as well.

BP noted that the design and installation of the pipelines willpresent numerous challenges, including a high pipeline inlet temperature with a CO2 component in the gas stream; a lack of local supply and construction infrastructure; and extreme, on-bottom currents, poor visibility, and high tidal range. Health, safety, and environmental concerns will also come into play, J.P. Kenny noted, given the active fishing and logging industries in the area.
