Ichthys Onshore Gas Export Pipeline
JKC Australia LNG Pty Ltd - Darwin NT
Project execution period
December 2012 - November 2016
The Ichthys LNG Project, one of the world’s largest LNG developments, involves gas from the Ichthys Field in the Browse Basin off north-west Australia being exported to the onshore processing facilities in Darwin via a 889km pipeline.
JKC Australia LNG Pty Ltd (JKC), was responsible for the engineering, procurement and construction of the Ichthys Project Onshore LNG Facilities, including the gas processing plant at Bladin Point.
Scope of Work
Monadelphous KT Pipelines was awarded the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for the Gas Export Pipeline (GEP), Fuel Gas Pipeline (FGP) and associated works, for the INPEX Ichthys Onshore LNG Facility.
The scope included the detailed design, procurement, construction, testing and handover of 8km of 42inch GEP from the onshore beach valve to the receiver station inside the plant, and 4km of 12inch FGP from the Wickam Point Lateral to the receiver station inside the plant boundary.
The GEP alignment runs through wetland mangrove areas that required civil enabling and push-pull construction methodologies to install the pipeline.
The works also included the installation of fibre optic and high voltage cables along the pipelines to the beach valve station.
