JKC Australia LNG, the EPC contractor for the Inpex-led Ichthys LNG project’s onshore facilities, awarded the first commissioning subcontract to EnerMech.
The scope of work will include nitrogen/helium leak testing of the piping systems, cooling water system passivation and degreasing of the acid gas removal units.
EnerMech was selected as the preferred tenderer for the multi-million dollar specialist commissioning activities package.
Last week, Inpex informed that the Ichthys LNG project with planned its annual LNG production capacity 8.9 mtpa, will start operations before the end of the current fiscal year, ending March 31, 2018.
The project is a joint venture between Inpex, major partner Total, Taiwan’s CPC Corporation and the Australian subsidiaries of Tokyo Gas, Osaka Gas, Kansai Electric, Chubu Electric Power and Toho Gas.
