These offshore cargo units will be used on the project’s central processing facility (CFP), as well as the floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel, both of which will be permanently moored in the Browse Basin for the duration of the project.
In addition to this, DNV 2.7-1 drum baskets and portable chemical tanks (approved under IMDG/ADR & RID) have already been sent to an oil and gas exploration and production company based in the Asia Pacific. In order to optimise freight and decrease costs, offshore tanks were secured into drum baskets for the journey to Darwin, Northern Territory, by road train.
The offshore cargo units will be used to support existing offshore production facilities at the Montara field, located 250 km northwest off of the Kimberley coast of Western Australia. It is estimated that the three-year supply deal is worth AUS$500 000.
OEG Regional Director, Dirk Alber, said: “I would like to praise the OEG team for the enormous amount of time and effort that went into preparing the Ichthys Project tender. We’re absolutely delighted that we’ve been successful, especially in the current challenging global market conditions. We’re now in close engagement with the customer to deliver the fleet of equipment required for the project’s Installation Hook Up and Commissioning (IHUC) as well as the on-going production operations. All preparations are going as planned and our focus is to provide our customer with a high standard of cargo units and quality service.”
