KBR/EOS Oil & Gas Services Joint Venture
The North Rankin Redevelopment Project
The Woodside-operated North West Shelf Venture constitutes Australia’s
largest oil and gas resource development and currently accounts for more
than 40 percent of the country’s oil and gas production. The AU$5 billion
North Rankin Redevelopment Project currently under construction will
recover low-pressure gas from the North Rankin and Perseus gas fields off
Karratha, Western Australia. The project involves installation of a second
platform—North Rankin B (NRB)—with gas compression facilities, low-pressure separators, utilities, and accommodations. NRB will be connected
by a 100-meter bridge to the existing North Rankin A platform, and the two
platforms will operate as the integrated North Rankin hub.

management strategy utilizes the Project Wise Lifecycle Server data
warehouse as the central asset register for the whole NRB facility.
