Fossil energy – FPSO
Santos and Carnarvon Petroleum announced the award of the FEED contract for the Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) facility for the Dorado project, in the Bedout Sub-basin, offshore Western Australia, to Altera Infrastructure (Altera).
Dorado is an integrated oil and gas project which is planned to be developed in two phases. The initial development involves the production of oil and condensate through a well head platform (WHP) and FPSO.
In June, the project entered the Front-End Engineering and Design (FEED) phase, which involves numerous work-fronts including the award of contracts for the FPSO and WHP. The FPSO contract will commence with full definition engineering by Altera to confirm the technical requirements for the FPSO and associated disconnectable mooring system.
