Inpex awards FLNG FEED for Abadi field off Indonesia

OGJ editors

Inpex Masela Ltd. has awarded competing contracts for frontend engineering and design (FEED) of its floating LNG plant for development of Abadi field off the Tanimbar Islands, Indonesia.

Inpex Masela (60% interest) will operate the project in partnership with Shell Upstream Overseas Services (I) Ltd. (30%) and PT EMP Energi Indonesia (10%).

The FEED was awarded to two groups: One led by engineering company JGC Corp./PT JGC Indonesia; the other by engineering and oil and gas contracting service company PT Saipem Indonesia/Saipem SA.

The first group consists of JGC Corp., PT JGC Indonesia, PT Technip Indonesia, PT Technip Engineering Indonesia, Technip France, and MODEC Inc. The second group consists of PT Saipem Indonesia, Saipem SA, PT Chiyoda International Indonesia, Chiyoda Corp., and PT Tripatra Engineering.

The announcement said that these groups will conduct the FEED in parallel under a design competition.

To keep to the project schedule and ensure consistency of engineering, it said, one of the groups will continue into the FLNG engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) phase. The FLNG EPC contract will therefore be awarded to the group that “provides technical and commercial superiority” based on overall design for the floating plant.

Stage 1 of the development of Adabi gas field envisions a single 2.5 tonnes/year liquefaction unit as well as production capacity of 8,400 b/d of condensate.
