Laing takes 800 workers off Ichthys

Engineering contractor Laing O’Rourke has taken 800 of its workers off the $US37 billion Ichthys LNG project in Darwin due to a pay dispute with its Japanese supplier.

Laing was contracted alongside Kawasaki Heavy Industries in 2012 to deliver four cryogenic tanks for the project’s head contractor, JKC Australia.

That work is in its final stages; however Laing said today that it hadn’t been paid for its work on the project for several months by KHI.
