$100-million contract for integrated freight forwarding services related to the construction of LNG plant facilities.
JKC JV, a joint venture, formed by JGC Corporation (JGC), Kellogg Brown & Root (KBR) and Chiyoda Corporation (Chiyoda), has awarded to SDV Australia a $100-million contract for integrated freight forwarding services related to the construction of downstream LNG plant facilities for the Ichthys LNG project in Australia.
The Ichthys LNG Project is a joint venture between INPEX (operator), Total, Tokyo Gas, Osaka Gas and Toho Gas and represents the second largest oil and gas development in Australia’s history. Gas from the Ichthys Field, in the Browse Basin approximately 200 kilometres offshore of Western Australia, will undergo preliminary processing offshore, and will then be transported to onshore processing facilities in Darwin via an 889-kilometre subsea 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.
JKC JV will construct the LNG facility at Blaydin Point in Darwin in the Northern Territory of Australia along with associated marine and infrastructure facilities. The project will deploy modular construction, minimizing onshore construction activities at the construction site in Darwin. JKC JV plans to utilize several fabrication yards located in Thailand, China and the Philippines to support the planned 180,000 tonnes of LNG modules.
