ABB Wins Third Ichthys FPSO Major Contract

Press Release
Tuesday, April 09, 2013

ABB appointed main electrical contractor (MEC) for a new floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel at the Ichthys oil & gas field in the Timor Sea off Western Australia.

The order is worth $30 million and was awarded by the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor for the FPSO, Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering.

This is the third major contract that ABB has been awarded for the Ichthys oil and gas project. Recently ABB was awarded a $15 million order by Samsung Heavy Industries to be the MEC for the Ichthys central processing facility, which, when completed will be the largest offshore production facility in the world. And, in 2012 ABB won orders worth $80 million to supply power technologies and medium voltage drive systems for a new onshore liquefied natural gas plant, to which the gas from the Ichthys field will be transported by pipeline for processing.

Ichthys is the second largest oil and gas project in Australia’s history. When production starts in 2016 Ichthys will have an initial production capacity of 8.4 million metric tons of liquefied natural gas and 1.6 million metric tons of liquefied petroleum gas a year, as well as about 100,000 barrels of condensate a day at peak. The $32 billion project is a joint venture between Japan-based Inpex Corporation and Total E&P Australia.

Daewoo selected ABB for its ability to provide a complete and integrated electrical solution for the entire FPSO. The solution has an exceptionally compact footprint and comprises a comprehensive range of ABB power products and systems, including high voltage air and gas insulated switchgear, low voltage switchboards, and liquid-filled and dry-type transformers. ABB is also responsible for design, engineering, installation, commissioning and project management.
