DNV GL Secures Services Contract for Ichthys LNG Project

DNV GL announced Tuesday that it has secured a contract to provide in-service verification services for a range of facilities at the Ichthys LNG project in Australia, including the central processing facility (CPF), the subsea production system and the onshore LNG plant.

As part of the contract DNV GL, which has provided vendor inspection, verification and offshore classification support for the $34 billion venture since 2012, will also conduct in-service classification of the CPF and the FPSO hulls. First production at Ichthys is scheduled for 2017 and the project is expected to produce 8.9 million tons of LNG per annum, and more than 100,000 barrels of condensate per day, at peak.

Richard Palmer, regional manager for Australia, New Zealand and Papa New Guinea at DNV GL, oil & gas commented in a company statement:

“The transfer of the Ichthys LNG project to operation will mark a significant moment in Australia’s oil and gas industry. We have learned a great deal from supporting Ichthys and a range of mega project operators in Australia as the country moves closer to becoming the world’s largest LNG producer. We look forward to applying our experience in Australia and gas projects in other countries to support the safe and efficient operations from the project’s first day in service.”

On September 11, Reuters reported that Inpex Corp delayed the start of production from its Ichthys liquefied natural gas to July-September 2017, from the end of 2016.
