Strengthening relations between Australia and Japan
The INPEX-led Ichthys LNG Project is one of the largest and most complex oil and gas projects in the world. It is three mega projects in one and incorporates some of the world’s biggest and most advanced offshore facilities off the Western Australian coast, massive onshore processing facilities near Darwin, and an 890 kilometre pipeline to unite them.
JKC Australia LNG is the engineering, procurement and construction contractor for the Ichthys Project Onshore LNG Facilities. JKC is a joint venture between JGC Corporation, KBR and Chiyoda.
The onshore scope of work for the Project includes the construction of two LNG processing trains, product storage tanks, a product loading jetty, a module offloading facility, a combined cycle power plant, utilities, permanent building facilities and an accommodation village.
The Japanese government considers this to be the most important project for Japan's energy because it will provide a stable energy supply and diversification of natural gas suppliers.
The project also received Major Project Facilitation status from the Australian Federal Government and is expected to strengthen relations between Australia and Japan.
Chiyoda along with its joint venture partners JGC Corporation and KBR, are internationally renowned companies responsible for building LNG plants.
Once complete, the gas treatment plant will receive feed gas from the gas export pipeline and process it into three products:
· Liquefied natural gas (LNG)
· Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG)
· Condensate, a liquid that is used in the refining industry to make products such as petrol
