EnerMech contract at Ichthys LNG project to create job opportunities

The Ichthys LNG project

Engineering company EnerMech has been awarded a subcontract by JKC Australia LNG for specialist commissioning activities at INPEX’s Ichthys LNG project at Darwin.

The multi-million-dollar scope of work includes nitrogen/helium leak testing of the piping systems, cooling water system passivation and degreasing of the acid gas removal units.

Works will be conducted at Bladin Point near Darwin with engineering and project management coordinated by the EnerMech staff on site, with support from their Darwin and Perth facilities.

EnerMech’s regional director for Australia Allan Hart said: “We have extensive experience on other LNG facilities in Australia and a high calibre of Darwin and Perth-based staff, with strong credentials in nitrogen leak testing and chemical cleaning contracts, which put us in an excellent position to win this subcontract.

“We are looking forward to continuing our relationship with one of the most significant LNG projects in Australia.”

EnerMech expects the scope of work to create more than 50 new jobs and has invested around $2 million in new equipment related to this subcontract.
