The Greater Enfield Development (GED) Project involves the development of the Laverda Canyon, Norton over Laverda, and Cimatti (WA-28-L) oil accumulations in Australia. The fields are located within the offshore Carnarvon Basin, approximately 60km north-west of Exmouth, Western Australia. The Laverda accumulations are situated at a water depth of 550m, whereas the Cimatti accumulation is situated at a water depth of 850m. The project is owned by the joint venture of Woodside Energy (60%) and Mitsui E&P Australia (40%). Woodside Energy is the operator for the project.
The final investment decision (FID) for the project was made in June 2016 and first production is anticipated in mid-2019. The overall investment in the project is estimated to be $1.9bn.
The Ngujima-Yin FPSO is connected to the seabed, at a water depth of approximately 340m, using a dis-connectable turret mooring system.
Commissioned in 2008, the FPSO has an oil processing capacity of 120,000 barrels per day (bpd) and is equipped with accommodation, water treatment facilities and a helipad.
Against stiff competition during a down market, LFF Perth Pty Limited was contracted by Aibel Singapore to supply the piping materials, including bolts and gaskets, for the Ngujima FPSO with work being carried out by the Keppel Shipyard in Singapore. Some operational phases of the project only proceeded based upon the commitment of LFF Perth being able to meet the delivery requirements. Utilising LFF’s global footprint allowed our Perth team to manage these critical contracts delivering the material in accordance with the complete technical package and on time.
