Petrofac has been awarded an integrity and maintenance programme development contract by INPEX for the Ichthys LNG project.
Plant Asset Management, part of the Petrofac Group, will complete the work over the next 20 months. It will be one of the largest global projects awarded to the company, involving an integrated gas chain covering both upstream and midstream assets.
Integrity and maintenance
Prior to start-up of the offshore and onshore facilities, Plant Asset Management will deliver a fit for purpose integrity and maintenance programme. This will allow for timely review and acceptance of the maintenance and inspection programme by operations personnel, and ensure repair strategies and spares are in place.
The company’s BuildME™ asset management programme development platform will support the project with a fully integrated work management system build environment.
Close engagement with INPEX through a pilot build and a Stage 1 integration exercise helped define an execution roadmap and project execution plans.
David Heavey, Business Manager (Australia), Plant Asset Management, commented: “This win is a testament to the hard work our team has put into year-on-year growth in Australia, building on the success achieved in providing high quality maintenance and integrity builds in a timely and cost effective manner. We look forward to continuing to build the relationship with INPEX over the next 20 months.”
