Global integrated solutions specialist EnerMech has been awarded a five-year onshore and offshore inspection services, lifting equipment and crane maintenance contract by Japan’s Inpex at its Ichthys liquefied natural gas (LNG) export project in northern Australia.

Starting in May, EnerMech will project manage and deliver campaigns consisting of the supply of lifting and rigging equipment, testing, certification and the provision of 24-hour
crane maintenance and technical support.

EnerMech’s cranes and lifting division has strengthened its core team of specialist engineers, maintenance technicians, offshore inspectors and support staff with a local Darwin recruitment campaign underway to support the Ichthys LNG work requirements. It has also invested in new equipment and tooling containers.

EnerMech has been active in Darwin for the past 12 years, supporting clients including Inpex and other major operators.

This is its second contract direct with Inpex. In December 2020, EnerMech won a five-year contract to support Ichthys LNG Phase 2 through the supply of nitrogen and specialised pressure testing services.

EnerMech’s regional director for APAC Garry Ford, said “this five-year contract with Inpex represents a significant expansion of EnerMech’s cranes and lifting operations in Australia. As a globally recognised centre of engineering excellence, this work further demonstrates our multi-disciplinary and agile capabilities, integral across our existing portfolio with other major organisations in the country.

The scope also firmly positions EnerMech as the largest cranes and lifting maintenance services company in the region. We have a highly skilled team with a wide range of
specialised skills. We are very pleased to be able to grow our team with the local talent in country and social enterprises, allowing us to support the local Darwin economy.”

Ichthys LNG is ranked amongst the most significant energy developments in the world. The Ichthys field is located about 220 kilometres offshore Western Australia and 820 kilometres southwest of Darwin covering an area of around 800 km2 in water averaging depths of around 250 metres. Gas and condensate from the Ichthys field are exported to onshore facilities for processing near Darwin via an 890-kilometre pipeline.
