The overall CWLH redevelopment project involves the replacement of the oil-producing Cossack Pioneer floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) facility, located offshore in the Carnarvon Basin, as well as the refurbishment of associated subsea infrastructure.

The Technip and Subsea 7 contract consisting in the refurbishment of associated subsea infrastructure covers:

The project team is based in Technip’s office in Perth, Western Australia. The flowlines and risers have been manufactured in Le Trait, France, one of Technip’s flexible pipe plants.

Offshore installation is scheduled to start in the fourth quarter of 2010 using the Venturer, a construction vessel from Technip’s fleet and the Nor Australis diving support vessel contracted to Woodside.
