Engineering and construction firms Kentz and AusGroup have won contracts collectively worth more than $114 million at Inpex’s Ichthys NG project in Darwin.

Kentz won the lion’s share of the work – a $104 million deal to provide underground electrical and instrumentation works.

The 17 month contract was awarded by Leighton Contractors.

Kentz regional managing director for Australasia, Chris Warlow, said it was pleasing to win work in the early phases of construction at Ichthys.

The Ichthys project is a joint venture between Japan’s Inpex and France’s Total.

It is expected to have a production capacity of 8.4 million tonnes of LNG and 1.6 million tonnes of LPG per year, processing gas from the Browse Basin off the WA coast at a purpose-built facility at Darwin.

The main civil works package for Ichthys was awarded to Leighton Contractors in December last year.

Also today, AusGroup’s Thailand-based subsidiary announced it had secured a $10.5 million deal to perform insulation works on the Ichthys plant.

The engineering and construction contractor said the contract won by AGC Thailand would cover the supply, fabrication and installation of insulation for pre-assembled modules on the Ichthys plant.

The works will take place in Thailand, and the modules will be transported to Darwin once complete.

Managing director Laurie Barlow said the contract demonstrated the company’s capacity to deliver major works in a range of locations.

“Our global reach is supported by our ability to offer the highest service and quality standards to all of our clients,” Mr Barlow said.
