McDermott bags new Ichthys LNG gig

Houston-based McDermott said it has secured a new contract for the Inpex-operated Ichthys LNG project in Western Australia.

The engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) project follows the completion of FEED services for a booster compression module for the Ichthys LNG development, McDermott said in a statement.

Also, the module will be added to the Ichthys Explorer central processing facility, located off the northwest coast of Western Australia.

This marks the third contract McDermott won for the project after successfully completing FEED services and converting contracts to EPCI.

McDermott’s EPC scope involves a booster compression module which would extend the production from the gas reservoir to the central processing facility, it said.

The US firm is currently undertaking umbilicals, risers and flowlines as part of an expansion of the existing offshore facilities.

McDermott said it would execute the work from its engineering centers of excellence in Perth, Kuala Lumpur and Chennai.

In addition, it will complete fabrication at McDermott’s yard in Batam.

It did not disclose any financial details of the contract.

The Ichthys project produces LNG at the 8.9 million tonnes per year plant at Bladin Point near Darwin.

Natural gas arrives in Darwin from the giant Ichthys field offshore Western Australia via an 890-kilometre export pipeline.

Ichthys LNG is a joint venture between operator Inpex and major partner France’s TotalEnergies.

Other partners include Australian units of CPC Corporation Taiwan, Tokyo Gas, Osaka Gas, Kansai Electric Power, JERA and Toho Gas.
