UK-based services provider Wood has been awarded the brownfield engineering services contract for the Inpex-operated Ichthys liquefied natural gas (LNG) project in Australia.
The contract includes services for both offshore facilities, located 220 kilometres off the coast of Western Australia and onshore LNG processing facilities in Darwin, Northern Territory.
Effective immediately, the contract is for five years with a two-year extension option and will be executed from Wood’s offices in Perth, Australia. It includes the delivery of engineering services to support the execution of brownfield works as well as technical support services.
It follows the win of a five-year contract in September 2016, to provide subsea engineering services to support Ichthys LNG.
Robin Watson, Wood’s chief executive said: “We are proud to be offering our diverse capabilities from subsea and topsides to brownfield engineering on this complex project, which has an operational life of at least 40 years.”
The Ichthys LNG project is expected to produce up to 8.9 million tons of LNG and 1.6 million tons of LPG at peak annually, with up to 100,000 barrels of condensate per day at peak.
