Wood wins engineering deal for Trion FPU

Wood has secured a contract from HD Hyundai Heavy Industries for detailed engineering of the topsides facilities on Woodside Energy’s Trion FPU in the Mexican waters of the Gulf of Mexico (GoM), which is targeting first oil in 2028 and 479 million barrels of oil equivalent over its life.

When complete, Trion will have a production capacity of 100,000 bbl/d and connect to a 950,000-bbl capacity FSO vessel.

This greenfield development will represent the first deepwater development in Mexico at a water depth of 2,500 m. HD Hyundai Heavy Industries is the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) provider for the FPU, and Wood’s latest award follows the delivery of the Trion pre-FEED and FEED design.

Wood was hired by Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) provider HD Hyundai Heavy Industries for the topsides design.

Wood said applying a practical approach to decarbonization in the design process has been an important part of this project, while also ensuring safety and quality.

Wood’s teams in Houston and Bogota, Colombia, will deliver the detailed topsides design work for the FPU project over the next three years.

In the last decade, Wood has designed more than 50% of topside facilities in the Gulf of Mexico today.
