The Ichthys field is located about 220km offshore Western Australia and 820km southwest of Darwin. The subsea pipeline is 882km long and continues 7km onshore to the liquefaction facilities being constructed at Bladin Point near Darwin.
The scope of work involves adjustable pipe support structures (APS) to the pipeline. The APS’s will support the pipeline and bring it to the required height and orientation at the end termination. Kongsberg will do engineering, procurement and construction and delivery while Saipem will do the installation. The construction is being undertaken in Henderson, Western Australia.
The design began in January 2015 and the APS will be tested and ready for installation by the end of July 2015.
