Technip has awarded Norway’s Aker Solutions a contract to supply a monoethylene glycol (MEG) reclamation plant for the Ichthys LNG project in Australia in a deal valued at approximately NOK 485 million (US $80 million).
The work scope includes system engineering and supply of key equipment for the MEG plant and may include further options. Equipment deliveries will take place in 2013 and 2014. The MEG reclamation plant will be located on the project’s FPSO being built by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering in South Korea. Technip has responsibility for the topsides engineering.
Management, engineering, and procurement of the project will be carried out at Aker Solutions’ offices in Oslo, Norway, with support from its office in Perth, Australia.
MEG is used to prevent hydrate formation in subsea pipelines, being injected at the wellhead, and following the gas and liquid flow to the gas processing facility.
The Ichthys LNG project is a joint venture between Inpex of Japan (operator), Total of France and other participants. Gas from the field in the Browse basin approximately 200 km (124 miles) offshore Western Australia will undergo preliminary processing offshore to remove water and extract condensate. It will then be exported to onshore processing facilities in Darwin via an 889 km (552 miles) subsea pipeline.
The Ichthys LNG Project is expected to produce 8.4 million ton of LNG and 1.6 million tons of LPG per annum, along with approximately 100,000 b/d of condensate at peak.
