ABB has won an order worth approximately USD 120 million to supply the overall Electrical Power System for the prestigious multi-billion-dollar Jansz-Io Compression project. The order, comprising contracts with Chevron Australia Pty Ltd and with Aker Solutions, is booked in Q3 2021. ABB will provide the majority of the electrical equipment, both topside and subsea, for J-IC. The project will combine two core ABB technologies, power from shore and Variable Speed Drive long step-out subsea power, for the first time. The electrical system will be able to transmit 100 megavolt-amperes over a distance of approximately 140 kilometers and at depths of 1,400 meters.

The contract was awarded following concept development and a front-end engineering and design study. Work will start immediately and the subsea compression system is expected to be in operation in 2025.

The Jansz-Io field is located around 200 kilometers offshore the north-western coast of Australia, at water depths of approximately 1,400 meters. The field is a part of the Chevron-operated Gorgon natural gas project, one of the world’s largest natural gas developments. The J-IC project, which moves gas from the deep seas to shore, marks only the third time that world-leading subsea compression technology is being deployed globally and the first time outside of Norway1 where ABB is also responsible for providing the EPS. The project will involve the construction and installation of a 27,000-tonne (Topside and Hull) normally unattended floating Field Control Station (FCS), approximately 6,500 tonnes of subsea compression infrastructure and a 135km submarine power cable linked to Barrow Island.

Using world-leading subsea compression technology, Jansz-Io Compression is positioned to maintain long-term natural gas supply to Gorgon. The Chevron-operated Gorgon Project is a joint venture between the Australian subsidiaries of Chevron (47.333 percent), ExxonMobil (25 percent), Shell (25 percent), Osaka Gas (1.25 percent), Tokyo Gas (1 percent) and JERA (0.417 percent).
