Ichthys LNG by INPEX has been announced as the Northern Territory’s Engineering Excellence Award winner and Sir William Hudson Award finalist.
INPEX-operated Ichthys LNG is one of the largest, technically challenging and complex liquefied natural gas developments in the world.
The operation is essentially three mega-projects in one, consisting of some of the world’s largest facilities in offshore Western Australia and an 890km subsea pipeline and state-of-the-art onshore liquefied natural gas processing and exporting facility at Bladin Point, Darwin.
Engineers Australia also today named Grant Chorvat as Professional Engineer of the Year Award winner for the NT and Jacinta Kelly as Young Professional Engineer of the Year Award winner.
Engineers Australia Northern Division manager Keely Quinn congratulated winners on their teamwork, innovation, and technical excellence.
“These Australian Engineering Excellence Award winners showcase the outstanding achievement in engineering and the invaluable contribution engineering makes to the economy, community and the environment,” Ms Quinn said.
“Ichthys LNG has been steadily producing and offloading gas and condensate since October 2018 and is a worthy nominee for the national award. With an operational life of more than 40 years, the social, economic and technological contributions to Australia will be significant.”
Earlier this week the slope stability radar technology SSR-Omni by GroundProbe was named as the Queensland’s top Engineering Excellence Award winner and Sir William Hudson Award finalist.
