DORIS Engineering Australia wins new contracts and expands local team

DORIS has recently been awarded contracts with tier-two Perth-based oil and gas operators.

The first is to provide multi-discipline owner’s engineering support to enable the operator to progress with its field development options. The second contract involves evaluating the technical and economic feasibility of a number of development concepts using DORIS’ local knowledge and expertise.

These wins follow the recent successful completion of a project for a leading oil and gas operator which saw the local team utilising the global DORIS expertise and working together to provide pre-FEED evaluation for process modifications for the operation and its subsequent impact on gas export quality, unit operations, and plant corrosion rates.

On the back of this successful project, DORIS continues its collaboration with this operator by providing process and flow assurance support for the company’s existing producing assets, including interface with various teams within the company to ensure the right level of process engineering has been reached to allow safe and reliable production of hydrocarbons.

DORIS’ expertise in process and subsea control systems will see the company continue in its provision of support to INPEX operations on the Ichthys project. DORIS 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.

Benoit Lamoureux, DORIS’ Managing Director, Asia Pacific said: “We are 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.

“Furthermore, we have signed partnership agreements with a number of local independent companies that complement our offering and enable our Perth office to provide clients with a broader range of bespoke engineering, construction, commissioning and project management services.

“With DORIS’ growing presence in the Asia Pacific region, we have been able to further capitalise on our global-leading position, drawing on expertise from DORIS’ global network of highly experienced multidisciplinary teams of engineers, backed by our established on-the-ground project team,” said Mr Lamoureux.
