Amec Foster Wheeler has received a consultancy contract from INPEX, Japan’s oil & gas exploration and production company, for the Ichthys Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Project in Australia.

Ichthys is the largest discovery of hydrocarbon liquids in Australia in the last 40 years.

The scope of work involves Amec Foster Wheeler providing a team of production and maintenance assessors to carry out competency assessments for the Ichthys Operations and Maintenance teams across all project assets. This includes the Central Processing Facility, Floating Production Storage and Offtake vessel and the Bladin Point LNG onshore processing plant. The assessments will be aligned to Australian national competency standards for the Process industry.

This is the latest example of Amec Foster Wheeler’s market leading capability being used to benefit a world class LNG project. We are proud to be involved in the Ichthys LNG Project and will utilise our significant global O&M expertise to deliver this important role.
