BAM Clough completes Ichthys MOF

BAM Clough has completed design and construction of the module offloading facility (MOF) for the Inpex-operated Ichthys liquefied natural gas plant in Australia.

The joint venture between Dutch player BAM International and Australian contractor Clough had scooped the A$140 million (US$131.5 million today) deal for the facility in early 2012.

Construction started in early 2013 and involved around 130 workers at the peak of the project.

The facility will be used to offload very large modules for the plant near Darwin in Australia’s Northern Territory.

The 50:50 joint venture is also constructing a product loading jetty for the project, with this expected to be delivered by the end of the year.

That contract was won in March 2012 and was valued at A$370 million.

Under the deal, BAM Clough was to design and build a Y-shaped approach jetty connecting the onshore facility to two berths, one for LNG carriers and a second for LPG/condensate carriers.

The jetty will consist of a 680-metre leg connecting to the LNG berth, and a second 630-metre leg connecting to the LPG/condensate berth.
