Clough has released a statement claiming that it has been awarded a contract by Samsung Heavy Industries Co. Ltd (SHI) to provide hook-up services on the central processing facility (CPF) of the INPEX-operated Ichthys LNG project. This particular CPF will have a topsides weight of 70 000 t, and will be the largest semi-submersible platform in the world.
Clough will commence activities in 1Q16, and will prepare and execute the offshore hook-up work and assist in the commissioning phase. Clough’s Korean joint venture (JV), CloughCoens, will provide technical support to the project management team, which will be based in Clough’s office in Perth, Australia.
Kevin Gallagher, the CEO and Managing Director of Clough, said: “Since early 2012, Clough has invested heavily in developing our hook-up capability and implementing key productivity tools and processes to reduce cost and deliver greater certainty of project outcome for our clients. This contract award sees this investment come to fruition and firmly establishes Clough as a leader in hook-up services.”
“I am particularly delighted to continue to build on our strong relationship with INPEX on the Ichthys LNG project, where Clough and our partners have delivered the LNG jetty and module offloading facility contracts and are executing the integrated project management services contract. We are focussed on supporting INPEX and their JV partners through the final stages of the Ichthys LNG Project.”
