McDermott Completes FEED and Wins Ichthys Booster Compression Platform EPC Contract

McDermott has won an engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) project after successfully completing FEED services for a booster compression module for the INPEX-operated Ichthys LNG development. The module will be added to the Ichthys Explorer central processing facility, located off the northwest coast of Western Australia.

"Ichthys LNG is ranked among the most significant and complex energy developments in the world. We've been there since 2012, and we are very familiar with the Ichthys gas field," said Mahesh Swaminathan, McDermott's Senior Vice President, Asia Pacific. "McDermott's integrated, end-to-end solution minimizes project risks by enhancing delivery certainty and managing COVID-19 impacts."

This is the third contract McDermott has awarded the project after successfully completing FEED services and converting contracts to EPCI.
