Ichthys LNG - Temporary Site Facilities

  • Client: INPEX

  • Contract Value: $2.2m

  • Contract Period: May 2012 - March 2014

Ngarda, in partnership with Leighton Contractors is providing civil works, plant and labour hire for the Temporary Site Facilities on the Ichthys LNG Project onshore facilities in the Northern Territory.

Leighton Contractors was awarded the $93 million contract by Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) company JKC Australia LNG, for work at the Blaydin Point site near Darwin. This will include the design, engineering, supply, construction, testing and commissioning for various temporary site facilities.
The work also includes the associated services, power, water, telecommunications services/utilities, infrastructure and temporary services distribution networks at site.

The Ichthys LNG Project is a Joint Venture between INPEX group companies (the Operator), TOTAL group companies and other participants. Gas from the Ichthys Field, in the Browse Basin offshore Western Australia, will undergo preliminary processing offshore to remove water and raw liquids, including condensate.

The gas will then be exported to the onshore processing facilities in Darwin via an 889km pipeline. The Ichthys LNG Project is expected to produce 8.4 million tonnes of LNG and 1.6 million tonnes of LPG per annum, along with approximately 100,000 barrels of condensate per day at peak.

The Temporary Site Facilities Works project is due for completion in March 2014.
