The Sarens Group has recently signed a contract to perform sea lifting works for the Ichthys LNG Project in Darwin, Australia.
Being recognized internationally as a worldwide leader of heavy lifting and engineered transport with broad expertise in the LNG market, the Sarens Group has been awarded by JKC Australia LNG to perform sea lifting works for the INPEX-operated Ichthys LNG Project's onshore LNG facilities located in Darwin, Australia. JKC Australia LNG is a joint venture between the JGC Corporation, KBR and the Chiyoda Corporation.
Within a one month time frame, the Sarens Group will perform two major installation works:
- The loading, transportation and installation of 3 jetty modules with the heaviest one weighing up to 472 tons. These modules will be picked-up from the module offloading facility (MOF) and installed on the jetty head by a 1250 tons capacity CC6800 Terex Demag crawler crane mounted on a barge.

These structures are being assembled on the East Arm Port and will be loaded by a 350 tons Liebherr LR1350 onto a second barge, then transported to the jetty head and installed with the CC6800 Terex Demag which is mounted on the barge.

The Ichthys LNG Project is a Joint Venture between INPEX group companies (the Operator), major partner Total and the Australian subsidiaries of Tokyo Gas, Osaka Gas, Chubu Electric Power and Toho Gas. Gas from the Ichthys Field, in the Browse Basin offshore Western Australia, will undergo preliminary processing offshore to remove water and raw liquids, including condensate.
The gas will then be exported to onshore processing facilities in Darwin via an 889 kilometer subsea pipeline. The Ichthys LNG Project is expected to produce 8.4 million tons of LNG and 1.6 million tons of LPG per annum, along with approximately 100,000 barrels of condensate per day at peak.
JKC is responsible for the engineering, procurement and construction of the $15 billion Ichthys Project Onshore LNG Facilities, including the onshore marine infrastructure, comprising jetty and module offloading facility (MOF), LNG storage tanks, combined cycle power plant and associated infrastructure, and the 3500-bed state-of-the-art accommodation village.
