The Browse project will capitalize on Shell's FLNG experience, as well as on Woodside's offshore and subsea development expertise. The first contract awarded to the Technip Samsung Consortium covers the front-end engineering design (FEED) elements of the Browse FLNG project, taking into account the composition of the gas, local weather conditions and factors specific to each of the three fields. This contract was immediately novated by Shell to Woodside as operator.

Nicoletta Giadrossi, President Region A(2) of Technip, stated: "We are proud to have been awarded this contract which will associate the know-how and expertise gained on Prelude FLNG by our teams, while reinforcing our partnership with Samsung Heavy Industries."
