Perth-based infrastructure, construction and services company, Whittens, grabbed a new contract on Ichthys LNG project from Kawasaki Heavy Industries. 

Under the new contract, the company will complete the closing of the Temporary Construction Opening (TCO), and insulation of the ceiling and walls across four cryogenic tanks – two LNG, one propane and one butane.

Work has already started in April and is expected to take around four months, Whittens said.

Inpex-led Ichthys LNG project is preparing to transition its onshore processing plant from construction into the operation phase, the company said in a recent statement.

The project, which is expected to start production by March next year, will have the capacity 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.

It 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.
