Clough Bags Another Ichthys Hook-Up Deal
Clough has won its second contract for the hook-up services on the Ichthys LNG Project, this time for the floating, production, storage and offloading (FPSO) facility.
This contract award comes from Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME), following a similar contract award by Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) earlier in the week.
According to the company, the scope of work includes the preparation and execution of offshore hook-up and assistance to commissioning.
Work should start in the first quarter of 2016 with the mobilisation of engineering and technical teams to the DSME fabrication yard located in Geoje, Korea before moving offshore in the Browse Basin, 200 km off the northern coastline of Western Australia.
The company said that the project management will be executed from its office in Perth with the technical support of its Korean joint venture CloughCoens.
Clough’s CEO and managing director, Kevin Gallagher, said: “This second award firmly establishes Clough as the leader in the provision of hook-up services to the oil and gas sector. We are delighted to be assisting INPEX and DSME with this critical phase of the project.”
