Progressing the Future
Building a large gas FPSO

In 2021, BW Offshore signed a contract to build an FPSO to be operated on the Barossa gas field, which is located 300 kilometres offshore Darwin in northern Australia.

The unit for the Barossa gas field will be a large FPSO with processing capacity for up to 800 million standard cubic feet per day (MMSCFD) of gas and design capacity of 11,000 barrels per day of stabilised condensate. The FPSO will be turret moored with a newbuilt hull based on BW Offshore’s RapidFramework® design.

The innovative Rapid Framework® concept is based on experience from the development of the Catcher FPSO in 2017, allowing for concurrent hull construction and topside integration by removing interdependencies during construction phase. The robust design can accommodate the most advanced topsides. For Barossa, the topside weight is expected to be approximately 35,000 tons.

New Ventures and Technology
Building a substantial and growing position in offshore renewable energy infrastructure

BW Offshore is committed to contributing to the energy transition by developing low-carbon offshore energy production solutions. We are applying four decades of experience in the energy sector, with extensive innovation and financing capabilities, to develop floating energy solutions and offshore renewable power production at industrial scale.

Political and financial commitments to reducing the carbon intensity of global energy systems continue to gain momentum, using solutions such as floating wind, hydrogen, ammonia and carbon capture.

For us, this includes combining existing FPSO and floating wind capabilities to develop and deploy clean offshore energy production and develop new adjacent business areas. These may include low-carbon FPSOs powered by floating wind or floating gas-to-power plants.

BW Offshore are looking into several areas of renewable energy that fit well with our existing business of operating FPSOs, and where we believe we can leverage already existing capabilities within our organisation
