Amec Foster Wheeler has landed a deal with INPEX for Australia’s largest discovery of hydrocarbon in the past 40 years.
INPEX, Japan’s largest oil & gas exploration and production company, awarded Amec work for the Ichthys Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Project, including providing a team of production and maintenance assessors to carry out competency assessments for the Ichthys Operations and Maintenance teams across all project assets.
Roberto Penno, Amec Foster Wheeler group president for Asia, Middle East, Africa & Southern Europe, said: “This is the latest example of Amec Foster Wheeler’s market leading capability being used to benefit a world class LNG project. We are proud to be involved in the Ichthys LNG Project and will utilise our significant global O&M expertise to deliver this important role.”
The contract, which runs until April 2017, includes the Central Processing Facility, Floating Production Storage and Offtake vessel and the Bladin Point LNG onshore processing plant. The assessments will be aligned to Australian national competency standards for the process industry and will be carried out in yards in Korea, offshore Western Australia, and at the onshore LNG facility in Darwin
