Programmed Maintenance Services has won a $100 million contract to provide support for work on the Ichthys liqueified natural gas project off the coast of Western Australia.

The contract marks another major oil and gas win for Programmed, which has also secured work on Chevron's Gorgon and Wheatstone liquefied natural gas projects.

The staff and services firm will provide support to Heerema Marine Contractors, a company working to construct the massive LNG project, with vessel management, catering and logistical services.

Japan's Inpex is the operator of the Ichthys project, which consists of the Ichthys offshore gas field and an LNG plant in Darwin.

Programmed said its work would commence in mid-2014 and last for about 12 months.

"This highlights our continuing success in securing contracts to support the marine management, manning and logistical needs of Australia's largest oil and gas projects," Programmed managing director Chris Sutherland said.

Programmed is set to complete its work on the Gorgon project at the end of this year before beginning work on Wheatstone and then Ichthys.

Shares in Programmed gained 3 per cent to $2.69 at 12:15PM WST.
