A joint venture between UGL and Kentz has won a $740 million construction contract for Inpex's Ichthys LNG project in Darwin.

The contract involves structural, mechanical and piping construction package for the onshore component of the project.

The scope of work includes the provision of services for site wide installation for process trains and additional pre-commissioning and commissioning expertise.

Work will begin on site in August and is scheduled to be completed before start-up of the second LNG train.

The contract will provide more than 900 jobs for construction personnel in the Northern Territory.

The Ichthys LNG project involves tapping an offshore gas and condensate field in the Browse Basin off the Kimberley coast and piping the product to a processing hub in Darwin before export.

Besides project operator, Japan's INPEX, other partners include France's Total and the Australian subsidiaries of Tokyo Gas, Osaka Gas, Chubu Electric Power and Toho Gas.
