Doris Engineering Australia has been awarded contracts with Tier 2 oil and gas operators based in Perth.

The first contract involves providing multi-discipline engineering support to enable the operator to progress with field development options.

The second, will capitalise on Doris’ local knowledge and experience in Western Australia, through evaluating the technical and economic feasibility associated with a number of development concepts.

These contracts follow the recent completion of another oil and project that involved providing pre-front end engineering design (FEED) evaluation for process modifications and the impact of the operation on gas export quality, unit operations and plant corrosion rates.

Doris is also continuing its provision of support to Inpex operations on the Ichthys liquefied natural gas (LNG) project offshore Western Australia.

The company will also be involved in the next phase of Ichthys through the delivery of technical assistance to the Inpex execution team for the design, fabrication and installation of the umbilicals, risers and flowlines.

According to Doris managing director, Asia Pacific, Benoit Lamoureux, the company is “witnessing a marked increase in project activity in Asia Pacific, especially in Australia, resulting in recent new contract wins and invitations to tender.”

“In line with increased activity levels, we have considerably expanded our Perth team with several recent new hires bringing our headcount to ten and further extending our local regional knowledge and skills base,” he said.
