Global energy services player Baker Hughes has won a contract from Chevron to deliver subsea compression manifold technology for its recently sanctioned Jansz-Io Compression (J-IC) project offshore Australia.

New York-listed Baker Hughes will provide Chevron with a subsea compression manifold structure including module and foundation, as well as the latest optimised version of its horizontal clamp connector system and subsea controls for the manifold structure. The financial value of this contract was not divulged.

The Chevron-led Gorgon joint venture in July took the final investment decision on the US$4 billion J-IC project, which will maintain long-term production rates from the Gorgon liquefied natural gas project.
