LNG contractor McDermott International said it has recently successfully completed the final offshore campaign for the Inpex-operated Ichthys LNG project, located offshore Western Australia.

This was the second of two remaining work packages left under McDermott’s contract, which was the largest subsea contract ever awarded at the time.

Most of the EPCI for the SURF contract awarded in January 2012 was completed by the end of 2017, the company said in a statement.

The final offshore campaign involved subsea tiebacks to new drill centers and was executed by McDermott’s Lay Vessel 108 (LV 108).

McDermott has a small fabrication scope remaining to be completed at its fabrication yard in Batam, Indonesia, which will conclude its work packages for the Ichthys LNG project in its entirety in 2019.

The project has the production capacity of approximately 8.9 million tons of liquefied natural gas (LNG) and approximately 1.65 million tons of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) per year, along with approximately 100,000 barrels of condensate per day.

First cargo left the facility in October last year. About 70 percent of the LNG produced by the export project will be supplied to Japanese customers.

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.
