CB&I of the Netherlands has scooped a large deal from JKC Australia LNG to work on the giant Ichthys project off the north-west of the country.
The Dutch infrastructure giant is to do engineering,
procurement and construction of non-cryogenic storage tanks for the project, as
well as pre-commissioning.
The total deal value of over $80 million, CB&I said.
The Ichthys oil and gas project will have an initial
production capacity of 8.4 million metric tonnes of LNG and 1.6 million metric
tonnes of liquefied petroleum gas a year, as well as about 100,000 barrels of
condensate a day at peak.
Japan’s Inpex owns a 66.07% operating stake in the project
with Total on 30% and LNG buyers Tokyo Gas, Osaka Gas, Chubu Electric and Toho
Gas splitting the remaining 3.93%.
