SDV Australia, subsidiary of SDV France, announced that the Joint Venture (JKC JV) formed by JGC Corporation (JGC), Kellog Brown & Root (KBR) and Chiyoda Corporation (Chiyoda), has approved the award of the integrated freight forwarding services contract to SDV Australia, related to the construction of downstream LNG plant facilities for the Ichthys LNG project in Australia.
The contract amount that SDV Australia is awarded is more than 100 M USD conversion, and the freight forwarding volume in the vicinity of 580,000 FT.
The Ichthys LNG Project is a joint venture between INPEX (operator), Total, Tokyo Gas, Osaka Gas and Toho Gas and represents the second largest oil and gas development in Australia’s history. Gas from the Ichthys Field, in the Browse Basin approximately 200 kilometers offshore of Western Australia, will undergo preliminary processing offshore to remove water and extract condensate.
JKC JV will execute and construct the LNG facility at Blaydin Point in Darwin in Australia’s Northern Territory along with the associated utilities and off-site, marine facility and infrastructure facilities.
A unique and challenging aspect of the EPC effort adopted for this Project is the fully modular construction strategy: minimizing onshore construction activities at the construction site in Darwin. JKC JV plans to utilize several fabrication yards located in Thailand, China and the Philippines to support the planned 180,000 tons of LNG modules.
SDV Australia, as part of SDV Asia-Pacific will operate the management of the integrated freight forwarding service contract through a unique combination of local strengths between Japan, Australia and their regional support headquarters in Singapore, and will leverage on their broad international network.
SDV Australia endeavors to support Australian Industry Participation (A.I.P) with special emphasis on the Northern Territory, and to execute the project within the highest quality, health, safety standards as well as environmental and security aspects.
SDV is a global supply chain leader, with global headquarters in Paris (France) and regional headquarters in Singapore, having multiple operation centres on the five continents, and executing large-scale freight forwarding and logistics projects world-wide, supporting the mining, oil & gas, infrastructure and power generation industries.
