GE Oil & Gas signed a long term service agreement with Chevron Australia on Monday to provide subsea services for the company’s operated natural gas assets located off the northwest coast of Western Australia.

GE will supply a range of services including project management, inventory storage, preventative maintenance and obsolescence management.

Additional services on demand will include engineering analysis, field services, rental tooling, corrective maintenance, wellheads, spare equipment and training.

GE said the agreement will expand its services footprint for oil and gas projects in the region, with a focus on Industrial Internet offerings.

 “The needs are multiple and competing: faster, cheaper, local, predictable, more efficient, less resource intensive. Most oil and gas sector companies are looking for fresh ways to tackle these challenges, and many are turning to technology,” GE Oil & Gas president and CEO Lorenzo Simonelli said.
GE recently signed another service agreement with Santos GLNG Ltd. for its liquefied natural gas plant on Curtis Island, off the coast of Gladstone, Queensland.
Under the Santos agreement, GE plant managers will receive a notification if a machine is behaving abnormally, allowing abnormalities to be investigated and addressed while avoiding any unplanned downtime.
“We will continue to invest in our technology and learning complex in Jandakot to provide skills development and leadership for the industry, in our dedicated oil and gas facility in Broome, and in the more than 500 people that work across our GE businesses in Western Australia,” regional director, GE Oil & Gas Mary Hackett said.
