ABB Wins Orders on Australia's Large Ichthys LNG project

ABB wins orders worth US$ 80-million in connection with one of Australia’s largest oil and gas developments offshore Darwin, Northern Australia The contract is to supply power technologies and medium-voltage drive systems for the new Ichthys liquefied natural gas (LNG) project’s processing plant near Darwin, Australia. The equipment will power the plant and control the compressors that liquefy the gas. Approximately half of the order value was booked at the end of the first quarter with follow through orders in the second quarter. Gas from the Ichthys Field, in the Browse Basin approximately 200 kilometers (km) off the coast of Western Australia, will undergo preliminary processing offshore to remove water and extract condensate.
