Engineering company Monadelphous on Monday said it has won a new contract for the Inpex-operated Ichthys LNG project in Australia.

Under the deal, Monadelphous will provide structural, mechanical, piping, electrical and instrumentation works for the completion of the gas turbine generators and the associated steam piping of the combined cycle power plant at the Ichthys LNG facilities near Darwin.

The contract has been awarded by Ichthys leading contractor JKC Australia, a consortium of Japanese engineering groups JGC and Chiyoda and US engineering group KBR.

Additionally, Monadelphous’ China-based fabrication business, SinoStruct, has been awarded a contract to supply approximately 7,000 tonnes of structural steel, plate work and conveyers to Kiewit Corporation.

The combined value of the two contracts is about A$170 million.

The new Ichthys contract follows the recent awards to Monadelphous for the works at cryogenic tanks at the Ichthys plant and maintenance services for the project’s central processing facility.

To remind, Inpex announced in April it had postponed the start of the giant LNG project.

First LNG from the project is now expected by March 31 next year.

The Ichthys project is expected to produce 8.9 million tons of LNG and 1.6 million tons of LPG each year, along with more than 100,000 barrels of condensate per day at peak.

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.
