GE wins Chevron offshore contract

Australia

PERTH, September 21, 2015 – GE Oil & Gas has secured a long-term deal to provide subsea services at Chevron’s offshore assets in Western Australia.

The US conglomerate said on Monday that its oil and gas division will provide project management, inventory storage, wellheads, training and engineering analysis at Chevron Australia’s operations off the country’s northwestern coast.

 

GE Oil & Gas opened a maintenance and training facility in the Perth area in 2012, and, more recently, a subsea support facility in Broome, Western Australia.

The company will use data and predictive maintenance to increase Chevron’s offshore production. Details of the contract duration and value were not immediately made public.

Chevron and GE formed a partnership early last year to develop oil and gas technology, and had earlier collaborated on furthering techniques for flow analysis.

Chevron’s operations in Australia include the Gorgon and Wheatstone projects to develop offshore gasfields and produce LNG.
