Wood to support Beach Energy’s Trefoil development opportunity

Wood, the global consulting and engineering company, has secured two Front End Engineering and Design contracts to support Beach Energy’s Trefoil field development opportunity in the Bass Basin.

The potential Trefoil Project is a subsea development at the Trefoil field, with a tie-back to the Yolla Platform. Wood will provide FEED services for both the platform topside modifications, and the subsea and pipeline system that would maximise recovery and extend the lifecycle of the assets.

Ralph Ellis, President of Wood’s Operations business in Australia, said: “We are delighted to continue our relationship with Beach Energy to deliver this strategic development. The contract wins demonstrate our strength in engineering and design as well as our detailed understanding of complex offshore brownfields projects and decades of experience in Australia including the Bass Basin and Otway development specifically.”

Enda O’Sullivan, Vice President of Consulting at Wood, said: “We are proud to support Beach Energy with a robust technical solution that could extend the life of their assets and help meet the needs of the local gas market.”

The Trefoil gas field is located 38km east of the Yolla Platform. The development of the Trefoil resources through the existing Yolla Platform would extend the asset life by approximately 10 years, increase recovery from the Yolla field and defer abandonment of the Yolla Platform and Lang Lang Gas Plant.
