McDermott International Ltd. has been awarded a contract on Nov. 10 to provide FEED services for the INPEX-operated Ichthys LNG field development.
The award is for a booster compression module FEED with optional engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) for the project. The booster compression module will be added to the Ichthys LNG offshore central processing facility, located off the northwest coast of Western Australia.
“This award illustrates McDermott’s continuing expertise in complex offshore EPCI,” Ian Prescott, McDermott’s senior vice president, Asia Pacific, said. “Our work to date demonstrates our qualifications to deliver smart solutions in challenging environments—and to the highest safety and technical standards.”
McDermott is also undertaking umbilicals, risers and flowlines (URF) as part of an expansion of the existing Ichthys LNG facilities.
Engineering will be completed in McDermott’s Asia Pacific headquarters in Kuala Lumpur. The FEED will commence in October 2020.
The new partnership expands Pickering Energy Partners’ current investment platform to include SailingStone’s energy transition, global natural resources and ESG investment experience and strategies.
