INPEX Australia has awarded Wood Group a five year contract to provide subsea engineering services for the integrity of the Ichthys LNG Project, offshore Western Australia.
The operations of all subsea assets and the gas export pipeline will be supported under the contract, which includes two one-year extension options and is effective immediately.
“We are proud to support the INPEX-operated Ichthys LNG Project’s successful production from one of the world’s largest LNG developments,” Wood Group Specialist Technical Solutions CEO Bob MacDonald said.
“Our focus will be applying our detailed knowledge and our extensive global experience of supporting subsea operations, to create value-driven solutions that assure the long-term integrity of the Ichthys LNG Project’s subsea system.”
The contract continues Wood Group’s 12 year support of the Ichthys LNG Project development, providing subsea engineering and project management services during the concept, front-end, and detailed engineering phases of the project.
This award follows on from the subsea integrity and maintenance services contract successfully completed in 2016.
