FEED Projects (Front End Engineering Design)
The Chevron-operated Wheatstone Project comprises the Wheatstone and Iago gas fields, located offshore Western Australia in water depths between 100 to 260. Wheatstone LNG is a planned liquefied natural gas plant at Ashburton North, west of Onslow, Western Australia.
The Cygnus field is the largest discovery in the Southern Gas Basin in the last 25 years and the Cygnus gas field development will consist of four platforms, the Cygnus Alpha, a three platform bridge-linked complex and Cygnus Bravo, a not normally manned installation located in UK’s Southern North Sea approximately 150 km north-east of Easington in a water depth of 23 meters. Gas production is scheduled for late 2015 and will be exported via the ETS to Bacton.
The Draupne field is located to the west of Stavanger in the North Sea. The partners in the Draupne field have agreed with the partners in the Luno field on a coordinated development solution for the area. Draupne will be developed using a fixed platform with pre-processing, and the well stream will be transported from the Draupne platform to Luno for final processing and export to the markets.
Arrow LNG is a multibillion dollar gas-export plant located on Curtis Island in Australia. Shell and PetroChina acquired the project through their joint A$3.4 billion takeover of coal seam gas developer Arrow Energy Ltd. Shell and PetroChina's plans involve the initial construction of two processing units, or trains, at Gladstone that are capable of producing a combined 8 million tons of LNG annually for export.
RAPID aims at building a world-scale integrated refinery and petrochemical complex to answer the growing need for specialty chemicals and to meet the demand for petroleum and commodity petrochemical products in the Asia Pacific region by 2016.
