By OGJ editors

HOUSTON, July 22 -- Woodside Energy Ltd. has awarded a £93 million contract to London-based AMEC PLC and Fluor Corp. to provide detailed engineering, procurement, and construction management services for the 150,000 tonne Enfield floating production, storage, and offloading (FPSO) vessel.

The project is part of the $1.5 billion (Aus.) development of deepwater Enfield oil field on permit WA-271-P about 40 km off West Australia (OGJ Online, Mar. 22, 2004). The field, which has oil reserves assessed at 145 million bbl, is scheduled to begin first production in 2006.

The FPSO will have a capacity to process a maximum of 100,000 b/d of oil and store as much as 1 million bbl. Its double hull, based on a newbuild Suezmax-type tanker modified for deepwater operations, is under construction by Samsung Heavy Industries in South Korea.
