The Ichthys project is looking for 8” NB, Class 300 valves as part of the underwater export pipeline being laid by Saipem
Full technical details on the valves can be found here. All valves need to be delivered EX-WORKS by October 2013.
The project is also seeking various monitoring equipment for the FPSO, including a Condition and performance Monitoring System (CPMS), various level analysers, a process oxygen analyser and MEG in water analysers. See here for more information http://gateway.icn.org.au/project/2891/ichthys-floating-production-storage-offloading-facility-fpso
The Ichthys Gas Field Development involves using a Central Processing Facility (CPF) and a Floating Production Storage and Offloading Facility (FPSO) located in the field with a number of satellite Drilling Centres (DC) consisting of manifold / subsea wells tied back to the CPF. The CPF will have facilities to separate the gas, condensate and water, gas dehydration (water dew point only), gas export compression and facilities for transfer of condensate / produced water to the FPSO. The FPSO facilities will include condensate stabilisation and storage in readiness for direct export to the market via shuttle tankers, mercury removal (from condensate), flash gas compression, MEG regeneration / reclamation and produced water treatment facilities.
The development offshore will be phased over a number of years with additional DCs and facilities added to the CPF and FPSO to support the reservoir depletion over time. The facilities on Blaydin Point, Darwin include gas receiving, LNG process plant (2 x 4.2Mtpa trains), product storage and export facilities. In addition to the production of LNG, other products produced will include LPGs and condensate. The field life will be approximately 40 years depending on production rates.
Applications for the subsea valves close on April 16, 2013 and for the monitoring equipment on April 25, 2013.
