LNG Industry,

Saipem has awarded Kongsberg Oil and Gas Technologies a contract to deliver subsea structures for the gas export pipeline project of the Inpex-operated Ichthys LNG project.

The subsea pipeline is 882 km long and continues 7 km onshore to the liquefaction facilities being constructed at Bladin Point near Darwin, Australia.

The contract scope includes Adjustable Pipe Support structures (APS), which will support the pipeline and bring it to the required height and orientation at the end termination. Kongsberg will be responsible for engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) and delivery, while Saipem will carry out the installation.

The design commenced in January 2015 and the APS will be tested and ready for installation by the end of July 2015.

Pål Helsing, President of Kongsberg Oil and Gas, said: “We are delighted to win this contract […] We are really looking forward to work[ing] with Saipem on this project. The contract is important for us in the Australian market and it shows that our solutions fit very well into the conditions and challenges offshore Australia.”
