Five-year Ichthys Contract Goes to Wood
Wood wins Ichthys engineering services contract.

Wood has won the brownfield engineering services contract for the INPEX-operated Ichthys offshore facilities, located 220 kilometers off the Western Australia coast and onshore liquefied natural gas (LNG) processing facilities in Darwin, Northern Territory, Wood reported Tuesday.

“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,” Robin Watson, Wood’s chief executive, said in a written statement.

According to Wood, the contract – effective immediately – includes the delivery of engineering services to support the execution of brownfield works as well as technical support services. The company said that it will execute the contract, which spans a five-year period and includes a two-year extension option, from its offices in Perth.

On its website, INPEX calls the Ichthys LNG Project “effectively three mega-projects rolled into one.” The estimated US$34 billion development comprises offshore facilities and onshore processing facilities linked by nearly 900 kilometers of pipeline. INPEX anticipates that Ichthys will product up to 8.9 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) of LNG, 1.6 mtpa of LPG and more than 100,000 barrels per day of condensate.

INPEX’s partners in Ichthys include Total, CPC Corp. Taiwan, Tokyo Gas, Osaka Gas, Kansai Electric Power, JERA and Toho Gas.
