ABS Selected By Woodside For Asset Base Classification and Verification

Tuesday, November 01, 2005
ABS has been selected by Woodside Energy Ltd, Australia’s largest publicly traded oil and gas exploration and production company, to provide classification and verification services across the Pan-Woodside Energy Ltd asset base for the next five years. The multi-year, multi-million dollar contract covers core operational requirements of the company’s activities off Australia and existing and future emerging projects in Australia, the U.K., the U.S., Singapore and Korea. Woodside’s active exploration and production program includes such projects as the Enfield and Vincent developments offshore Western Australia, the Angel Gas Project and the Pluto LNG field about 180 km from the Burrup Peninsula, the Bonaparte Basin in the Timor Sea and projects off the US West and Gulf coasts. Woodside is also undertaking a major exploration program off Mauritania, West Africa. The agreement covers the energy major’s FPSO assets including production systems, equipment and safety systems. Classification will be to applicable ABS Rules. Verification will be to relevant international, national and state regulations, in particular Australia’s Petroleum Submerged Lands Act (PSLA) as it applies to the management of safety on offshore facilities. Woodside operates the North West Shelf Venture, and also operates more than 75 joint ventures on behalf of 39 participants in Australia, Africa and the United States. ABS will provide engineering design review, survey services and act as a liaison on behalf of government agencies to facilitate the reviews and surveys conducted to fulfill the regulatory requirements of these agencies. ABS already classes the Woodside operated FPSO Cossack Pioneer that has been on station on the North West Shelf for several years. This new agreement significantly expands the relationship with Woodside in terms of the number of units and geographic scope of the ABS activities.
