The Chevron Australia operated Gorgon Project is one of the world's largest natural gas projects and the largest single resource development in Australia's history. The Jansz-Io Compression (J-IC) Project objective is to unlock low pressure reserves from the Jansz-Io reservoir and maintain plateau production rates to the Gorgon Project facilities on Barrow Island (BWI). The J-IC Project is therefore an upgrade to an existing facility.
In an Australian first, this technologically advanced project will use subsea compression to enhance recovery of the Jansz-Io field to maintain long-term natural gas supply to the LNG plants on BWI.
Aker Solutions is currently engaged to provide front-end engineering and design (FEED) of a subsea compression station that will boost the recovery of gas from the field. The FEED scope will also cover an unmanned power and control floater, as well as overall field system engineering services. The field control station will distribute onshore power to the subsea compression station.
Aker Solutions helps the world meet its energy needs. We engineer the products, systems and services required to unlock energy. Our goal is to maximize recovery and efficiency of oil and gas assets, while using our expertise to develop the sustainable solutions of the future. Aker Solutions employs approximately 15,000 people in more than 20 countries.
Aker Solutions in 2015 delivered the world's first subsea compression system for Equinor's Åsgard field offshore Norway. Australia will be the first place outside of Norway to use the subsea compression technology.
Aker Solutions has been present in Western Australia for more than 20 years and we look forward to working collaboratively with Australian industry on this development.
