GE OPENS AUSTRALIA
GE announced on March 6 its new oil and natural gas facility in Broome, Western Australia, is finished and operational. The location includes a custom-build workshop, a warehouse, office space and an equipment hardstand area.
The facility, which is designed to service subsea oil and gas projects, will support INPEX's Ichthys liquid natural gas project, according to GE's official press release.
The Ichthys field is located almost 137 miles off the coast of Western Australia, and is the largest discovery of hydrocarbon liquids in the country in the past four decades, according to INPEX. The project is currently in the development phase, where INPEX will create production facilities in the field, including commissioning and drilling production and injection wells. During this time, GE will provide preparation, storage and maintenance services for the the subsea equipment.
"The establishment of the Broome facility represents an exciting milestone for our business in Australia," said Mary Hackett, GE regional director for Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea. "We are proud to be able to provide customers a solution that will mean better and more efficient operational and maintenance support for crucial offshore LNG development. It is great to deliver that excellence as part of the Broome community."
