Sparrows Group has secured a three year contract to deliver fixed crane maintenance and lifting and rigging services for the INPEX-operated Ichthys LNG project in Australia.
The agreement will see the company’s teams in Perth and Darwin, Australia, support activities across Ichthys onshore LNG facility at Bladin Point, the offshore central processing facility Ichthys Explorer and the Ichthys Venturer FPSO.
The scope encompasses maintenance, servicing and inspection of lifting equipment and cranes, the supply of lifting equipment, spare parts and materials; and technical and engineering support.
Located approximately 220 kilometres offshore Western Australia, the Ichthys Field represents one of the largest discoveries of hydrocarbon liquids in Australia in more than 40 years.
Ichthys is expected to produce 8.9 million tonnes of LNG and 1.6 million tonnes of LPG per annum, in addition to more than 100,000 barrels of condensate per day at peak.
