Zurich-based automation specialist ABB has signed a five-year framework agreement with operator Inpex to provide services that ensure equipment uptime and optimization of LNG production at the Ichthys LNG project.

Currently under construction, Ichthys is one of Australia’s largest LNG projects.

Described as three mega projects in one, the Ichthys LNG project incorporates offshore facilities located 220 km off the West Australian coast along with onshore processing facilities in Darwin and an 890-kilometer subsea pipeline to unite them.

The project is expected to have an operational life of 40 years, therefore extending equipment asset lifetimes to reduce capital expenditures, along with maintenance and operational costs is critical, ABB said in a statement.

This latest frame agreement covers support services for equipment supplied by ABB to facilitate the main power distribution for the onshore dual train LNG processing facility near Darwin that liquefies the gas collected from the offshore field.

The agreement also includes support for the electrical power distribution for the entire floating production, storage and offloading facility, Ichthys Venturer and the semi-submersible central processing facility, Ichthys Explorer.

ABB have also supplied analyzer equipment and instrumentation across the Ichthys LNG project assets.

The Ichthys LNG project is a joint venture between Inpex(the operator), major partner Total, CPC Corporation Taiwan, and the Australian subsidiaries of Tokyo Gas, Osaka Gas, Kansai Electric Power, JERA and Toho Gas.
