LONDON, Jan. 11 -- Woodside Energy has let a $24 million contract to the Eos joint venture for the design, engineering, procurement, and construction of its riser production platform for the Pluto LNG project off northwest Karratha, Western Australia.

The platform will export 1.6 bcfd of gas via a 36 in. subsea pipeline to an onshore single-train liquefaction plant having the capacity to produce 4.3 million tonnes/year of LNG.

Under the initial phase, Woodside will develop Pluto with five subsea big-bore wells with flowlines to the production platform which will be moored with risers in more than 275 ft of water.

Eos, a joint venture of KBR and WorleyParsons, has expanded the front-end engineering and design contract awarded in September 2006 into the engineering, procurement, and construction contract, with an option for execution services to include detailed design, procurement management services, and construction management assistance.
