Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co. Ltd (DSME) has awarded Clough a contract for the hook-up services on the Ichthys LNG project’s Floating, Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) facility.
This is the second hook-up contract that Clough has been awarded for the Ichthys LNG project, following the recent announcement that Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) had contracted the company to provide hook-up services on the central processing facility (CPF).
The Ichthys FPSO is a 336 m long, permanently moored and weather-vaning vessel. It is designed to hold more than 1 million bbl of condensate.
The scope of work includes the preparation and execution of offshore hook-up and assistance to commissioning. Work will commence in 1Q16, with the mobilisation of engineering and technical teams to the DSME fabrication yard located in Geoje, South Korea before moving offshore in the Browse Basin, 200 km off the northern coastline of Western Australia.
Clough’s CEO and Managing Director, Kevin Gallagher, said: “This second award firmly establishes Clough as the leader in the provision of hook-up services to the oil and gas sector. We are delighted to be assisting Inpex and DSME with this critical phase of the project.”
