Wood Group to provide subsea services for Ichthys project

  • Business & Finance

Energy services company Wood Group has secured a five-year contract with Inpex Australia 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, Wood Group informed on Wednesday.

It continues the company’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 completed in 2016.

Bob MacDonald, CEO of Wood Group’s Specialist Technical Solutions business, said: “We are proud to support the Inpex-operated Ichthys LNG Project’s successful production from one of the world’s largest liquefied natural gas developments. We have applied our global expertise and technical capabilities to support the development for over a decade.

“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.”

It is worth noting that both of project’s offshore facilities, the FPSO Ichthys Venturer and the CPF Ichthys Explorer, have already been moored at the field.
