Perth-based engineering company Atteris has been awarded a contract to perform the subsea front-end engineering and design work for the US$2 billion Dorado oil project offshore Western Australia.

Dorado is a major project with an FPSO and wellhead platform as its centrepiece production facilities.

The subsea system will consist of flowlines, risers and an umbilical all of which will connect the FPSO and the offshore platform.
