Ichthys LNG contract goes to McDermott

McDermott International has secured a contract to provide front end engineering and design services for the Inpex-operated Ichthys LNG field development.

The award is for a booster compression module FEED with optional engineering, procurement and construction for the project, the Houston-based firm said.

Furthermore, the module will be added to the Ichthys offshore central processing facility, located off Western Australia.

McDermott is also undertaking umbilicals, risers and flowlines as part of an expansion of the existing Ichthys facilities.

The US firm says it will complete engineering at its Asia Pacific headquarters in Kuala Lumpur.

McDermott 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 Total.

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