Hydrocarbons WorleyParsons has been delivering engineering and project management services to the global hydrocarbons industry for over sixty years. Our full-scope global project services span the entire asset lifecycle from the initial conceptual phase of major greenfield developments to ongoing asset services and brownfield modifications projects. Our capability and experience spans all oil and gas extraction and processing facility types and our global coverage enables us to provide comprehensive services to our customers wherever they may need us. CASE STUDY PROJECT: Shtokman Floating Production Unit CUSTOMER: Gazprom LOCATION: Kazakhstan ONE OF THE LARGEST OFFSHORE NATURAL GAS FIELDS Gazprom’s Shtokman natural gas reserves are amongst the largest offshore fields in the world. While the magnitude of the project is very exciting, it comes with the technical challenges that engineers and project specialists take particular interest in addressing. It is a career-defining project. The gas reserve is in deep water (340 metres) and the design must account for wave heights that can reach 24 metres. Temperatures can drop as low as -40° C and rarely climb above 10° C. All of this in a location that does not see the sun for most of the winter. WORLEYPARSONS AND INTECSEA’S ROLE WorleyParsons and our deepwater specialist, INTECSEA, were delighted to be appointed by Gazprom to perform Front End Engineering Design services on its Shtokman Phases 2 and 3 development. The role comprised the design of a ship-shape hull capable of withstanding the sea ice conditions, topsides capable of processing 70 million cubic metres per day of gas plus associated liquids and the overall Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) system integration. IMPACT ON ENERGY DEMAND The multi-phase development of the field will make a significant contribution to long-term energy security on the local, European and international markets supplying the gas needed to meet growing energy demands.

What our people are saying: Ben Lewis Graduate Marine/Coastal Engineer Commenced: 2011 Location: Perth

“I joined WorleyParsons in 2011 as a graduate Coastal and Marine Engineer in the Ports and Marine Terminals Group. This group is involved in marine structural and coastal engineering projects. During my time at WorleyParsons I have had the opportunity to work on a variety of projects including small scale assessments of marine facilities to larger projects such as design for ports of mining infrastructure developments. My exposure to a variety of projects early in my career at WorleyParsons has developed my professional skills that have enabled me able to confront the engineering challenges I am exposed to. My professional skills have also been developed through the Graduate Development Program. There are a number of courses and training that cannot be taught on the job that this program allows you to learn. The social aspect is also a winner; I have met a lot of interesting people from a range of disciplines by being involved in the program. The varied experiences gained as a young engineer at WorleyParsons have helped shape my professional career and I have enjoyed my time here and look forward to the experiences still to come.”

Sharon Gray Graduate Hydrogeologist Commenced: 2010 Location: Brisbane

“I began working for WorleyParsons as a Graduate Hydrogeologist in March, 2010. I have worked on many projects, mainly focussing on the Coal Seam Gas (CSG) industry’s need to sustainably manage groundwater resources. This work has been extremely challenging, allowing me to gain technical experience which is rare so early in my career. The Graduate Development Program has allowed me to develop other professional skills. I undertook business training so that I could meet customer’s needs and expectations in the often varied world of Environmental Consulting. I have also been mentored by hydrogeologists not only from Australia, but overseas in an International Community of Practice. Having moved up from Melbourne and away from my family and friends, I took the opportunity to meet new people through the social events organised by other graduates within the Graduate Development Organisation (GDO). I have met a lot of excellent people through these events, and during my time at WorleyParsons. It has been a very enjoyable and worthwhile experience.”

What our people are saying: Sanjaya Sulitsyo Senior Process Engineer Commenced: 2004 Location: Melbourne

“As a Senior Process Engineer, my experience has varied; I have covered all aspects, at various times, from conventional onshore and offshore upstream oil and gas through to deep water developments and heavy oil in the Canadian tar sands. I have also worked on a range of projects from the concept evaluation phase, through Front End Engineering Design, detailed design and commissioning and start-up. With WorleyParsons I’ve travelled to Malaysia, UK, Singapore and Canada - where I witnessed the northern lights and conquered minus 40 degree nights. I’ve learnt how to determine the status of a project and how it needs to progress in order to successfully deliver projects, and lead multi-disciplinary teams. What I like about WorleyParsons is the flexibility, the people and the capacity to move and connect with the various offices and people I have met along the way.”

Melissa Davin Graduate Process Engineer Commenced: 2012 Location: Perth

“I joined the Graduate Development Program in February of 2012 relocating from Melbourne to the office in Perth. In that time I’ve had the opportunity to work in a number of areas and on various projects. I started off in the Metals and Minerals area where I worked on the design of a haematite iron ore facility. I had exposure to Process Flow Diagram and Process and Instrument Diagram development. I then had the opportunity to rotate into the hydrocarbons area and work on a brownfields FPSO project. In this role I was able to view the HAZOP close-out procedure which included learning how to size PSV’s and perform various other calculations as well as marking up existing Process and Instrumentation Diagrams for re-drafting. I’ve also had the opportunity to join the Graduate Development Organisation who are responsible for organising graduate events, lunch and learns and advertising rotations to the graduate committee.
