Norway-based Halfwave has secured a long-term contract for multiple in-line inspections for the Inpex-operated Ichthys LNG project in Australia.

The contract was awarded by Inpex Australia, a unit of the Japan-based energy giant.

Halfwave did not reveal the value of the deal.

The scope of work includes a custom built 42” Acoustic Resonance Technology (ART) Scan by Halfwave to inspect the subsea pipeline that requires a low flow subsea launch with high speed inspection of the Ichthys 890 kilometer natural gas transmission pipeline.

The pipeline will deliver gas from the Ichthys field located within the northern Browse Basin about 220 km north-west of Western Australia’s Kimberley coast to the LNG at Bladin Point near Darwin

The Ichthys LNG project is expected to produce up to 8.9 million tonnes of LNG per annum and 1.65 million tonnes of LPG per annum, along with approximately 100,000 barrels of condensate per day at peak.

The LNG project is a joint venture between Inpex, Total, CPC Corporation Taiwan and the Australian units of Tokyo Gas, Osaka Gas, Kansai Electric Power, JERA and Toho Gas.
