SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Norwegian oil-platform maker Aker Solutions said on Tuesday that it has been contracted by Technip to supply Australia’s Ichthys liquefied natural gas (LNG) project with a monoethylene glycol (MEG) reclamation plant for about Norwegian kronor (NKr) 485m ($80m).

The scope of the work includes system engineering and the supply of key equipment, to be delivered in 2013-2014, for the MEG plant, Aker Solutions said in a statement.

The plant will be located on the floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) unit built by South Korea’s Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME), it added.

“Management, engineering and procurement of the project will be carried out at Aker Solution’s offices in Oslo, Norway, with support from the Aker Solutions office in Perth, Australia,” the statement said.

Details on the plant’s capacity were not immediately available.

The Ichthys LNG project is a joint venture between France’s Total, Japan’s INPEX, and other participants, and includes onshore gas processing facilities in Darwin, Australia for the extraction and export of LNG, liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and condensates.
