Van Oord finishes Ichthys dredging project

INPEX announced today the on-schedule completion of the Ichthys LNG Project’s dredging program in Darwin Harbour in the Northern Territory of Australia.

The program, which began in August 2012, involved the safe dredging and disposal of more than 16 million cubic meters of rock and sand from the harbor to create a deep shipping channel and berthing area for large LNG, LPG and condensate carriers servicing LNG processing facilities at Bladin Point near Darwin.

A separate dredging program for the Ichthys LNG Project’s gas export pipeline has also been completed with dredgers demobilized on July 23.

To date, INPEX says, the Ichthys LNG Project’s extensive public environmental monitoring program has recorded only a few minor impacts in Darwin Harbour, which are in line with original predictions.

International dredging, marine engineering and offshore projects contractor Van Oord led the program using some of the world’s largest and most powerful dredging equipment.
