How to get a job at the Ichthys LNG Project Onshore Facilities – Darwin NT


In the ‘How to get a start at …….’ series we are going to be running over Australian Mining and Construction projects all over the country.  In each post we will include an Overview of the project, a Location Profile, the Companies involved, the Occupations required, the skills / qualifications that will help you to get your foot in the door and the Enterprise Bargaining Agreements.  This will help you to stay in the loop and know how to skill up where needed.  The aim is to help you get yourself into the best position to land a start on the major sites and projects around Australia.

 

The Ichthys (Greek for ‘Fish’) Onshore LNG Facilities Project Overview

From the Inpex – Ichthys website

The Ichthys LNG Project is a world-class project to develop the gas and condensate field discovered by INPEX in the Browse Basin approximately 220 kilometres off the northwest coast of Western Australia.  It is being steered forward by the Ichthys Joint Venture of INPEX of Japan and Total of France.

This multi-billion dollar project will be ranked among the largest gas processing developments in the world.  The Ichthys Field contains resource estimates of more than 12 trillion cubic feet of gas. This is around 13 times the amount of gas Australia uses each year. The Field also contains the largest discovery of hydrocarbon liquid in Australia in 40 years, estimated at more than 500 million barrels of condensate.

The Ichthys Field in the Browse Basin offshore Western Australia first demonstrated its potential to be a world-class gas project in 2000. Since then, most likely resource estimates have grown to 12.8 tcf of gas and 527 million barrels of high value condensate.

In September 2008, INPEX (Operator, 76%) and its joint venture partner Total (24%), selected Darwin as the site for the LNG processing facility.

A Final Investment Decision (FID) on the Project was reached in January 2012, with construction set to begin shortly.

The Ichthys Project will deliver significant social and economic benefits to Australia. The project will bring jobs and training, business opportunities, new infrastructure and advanced technology – building capacity for the nation’s energy industry.

A small army of personnel is needed to construct and operate major gas development projects. Such projects drive local economies and attract oil and gas workers from all over the world.  The Ichthys Project is no exception and is expected to create more than 3000 direct jobs at the peak of the onshore construction phase. Many more jobs will be created indirectly in the Australian community as the economy expands to meet the demand generated by this massive construction effort.

Approximately 700 permanent positions will be created during the Project’s operations phase to operate and maintain the offshore and onshore facilities. Personnel will include project managers, plant operators, engineers, a range of oil and gas specialists, as well as providers of catering, laundry and cleaning services.

The KBR, JGC Corp. and Chiyoda Corp. joint venture, the JKC JV, signed the formal contract from Inpex and Total for engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) activities on the Ichthys LNG Project in Northern Australia.

The contract is valued at $15 billion and there is approximately five years work.

      Hey Troy

      Welcome to Cribhut.

      In the above article there is a link titled “The Ichthys Gateway.” Follow that link and it will take you straight there.

      Cheers and best of luck with your application.

  2. David

    I have tried 5 times now to submit my interest in employment in the general application area and it will not accept it. the cursor keeps going back to the resume attachement section. this has also happened to 3 of my freinds who have triedto submit there interest through this site.

    Cheers

    David Rowe

    • Owen

      Hi Dave,

      I have replied to you via your email address. I’m not exactly sure what you’re describing, so it will be easiest for me to explain and for you to explain over a phone call.

      Cheers mate

  3. Michelle Pedersen

    Hi Dave

    Please call the Construction Employment and Mobilisation Centre in Darwin on 08 8980 9999 between 10am and 4pm Darwin time. We can help you with any problems that you may be having.

    Regards
    Michelle

  4. Stan Nelson

    I actually submitted me application, how long before they go through it, i applied for a truck driver position, how many drivers would they be looking for i guess theres no time restraints at all

    • Owen

      Hey Stan,

      The best bet with all of the details for this project is to give the Construction Employment and Mobilisation Centre in Darwin a call on 08 8980 9999 and introduce yourself. The comment from Michelle above says to call between 10am and 4pm Darwin time.
      Keep in mind the wet season slows everything in the NT right down and I’d think this will play a part in when the Ichthys Project will ramp up.

      Cheers mate,

      Owen @ Cribhut

    • Owen

      Hey Tahi,

      We can’t comment on how the recruitment for the Ichthys Project will happen, as we have no involvement so far. Usually they will try to employ locals first.
      About half way down the article the companies have been listed that have been awarded work on the project. There are also link to the websites.

      I hope this helps you out.

      Cheers,

      Owen @ Cribhut

  5. josh

    hi,

    has any information been released as to the FIFO roster? if not, and are local are they just doing 6 day weeks?

    cheers josh

    • Owen

      Hey Josh,

      It’s a tough one to answer because there are so many different companies that have been awarded work.
      We haven’t been told of any rosters so far and also haven’t heard of any FIFO workers either. It will most likely start ramping up towards the end of the year mate.
      Most construction projects do 3 weeks on 1 week off or 4 weeks on 1 week off so it’ll probably be something similar.

      Keep an eye on this article because as we find the new EBA’s we’ll upload them, we also announce any new information on Facebook too.

      Cheers,

      Owen @ Cribhut

    • Owen

      Hey Sean,

      I’d try out any of the companies that have been awarded work on buildings and facilities.
      Try Lang O’Rourke, Leightons and Kentz.
      There’s a list half way down the article and the company names are also links to their websites. You will need to go to the career portal and register an expression of interest.

      Good luck mate!

      Owen @ Cribhut

  6. San

    Hey mate

    Do you recon there is more of a chance in getting work in darwin if i was to move there?only askin cos the misso bout to pop and doesnt want me doing FIFO work once we have the bub.

    Thanks sam

    • Owen

      Hey San,

      Cribhut doesn’t have any ties with the recruitment on this project so I really can’t answer that question for any of the companies.
      Usually the major projects have requirements to employ locals first this way they limit the FIFO army. The LNG Project would be pretty close to ramping up after the wet season but it will be civil and nothing coming out of the ground for sometime yet. Saying that, if you were to pack up and head to Darwin now you will find the cost for housing is going through the roof, so depending on your occupation it may be sometime yet.
      A mate of mine recently moved to Darwin in the hope of landing a gig on the LNG Project. He has found casual work and a bit of FIFO work as well to get him by.

      Worth a good think mate!

      Cheers,

      Owen @ Cribhut

  7. Matthew Jackson

    Hi I had tried to to fill application for interest in work and when go to hit next button on attach resume page it keeps saying fields not completed. Sounds the same problem that David had talked about on this page
    Thanks
    Matthew

    • Owen

      Hey Matthew,

      That’s a bugger! I know how annoying that can be. Unfortunately it’s the LNG Projects website and we can’t do much about that.
      I took a beau peep through their website and couldn’t find a contact email address to let me know the issue. I’d say they will be pretty quick to fix it up.

      Good luck!

      Cheers,

      Owen @ Cribhut

    • Owen

      Hey Rosemary,

      Cribhut doesn’t have any direct ties with the recruitment on this project so we can’t give you a accurate answer for your question. Usually these larger projects do employ medical staff, and I did check on the occupation list when you register your interest to work and ‘Nurse’ is included.

      Click through on this link to register your interest to work…
      http://www.ichthysjobs.com/

      On the right hand side of the screen there is a heading ‘join the team’, click this to go through to the career portal. From here click through on the tab ‘start new application’.

      Good luck Rosemary!

      Cheers,

      Owen @ Cribhut

  8. Ros Bennier

    mathew I found the same problem and they want you to cover all of the 5 years from day to day, so for the few times off in between projects I put my family down as my employer, father for duties and wife as reference

  9. Paul Wynne

    Hi just wanted to know how to apply for a job as a chef, can you tell me the company that has been awarded this contract.
    Regards Paul

  10. Wade jones

    Hi I’m wade jones currently live in qld and working a4-1week off roster as a Concreter looking to move to Darwin for long term permant work can you help me out for places to apply cheers

    • Owen

      Hey Wade,

      If you interest in securing work on the Ichthys LNG Project, you’ll need to register your interest to work on each companies career portal.
      About half way down this article there is a list of companies, under the heading ‘Companies Involved With The Project’ heading.
      Click through on these and you’ll see the scope of work and application section.

      Cheers,

      Owen @ Cribhut

  11. tom

    hi owen, I’m a plumber, I submitted my interest on the gateway for a job already, I also want to contact the contractor directly, but none of those contractors say they do plumbing. do you know how else I could find out?

    thanks, Tom

  12. Tracey

    Hi, Just wondering if you know what is involved in the medicals (what tests they want done) for employment at Ichthys
    Thanks
    Tracey

    • Owen

      Hey Tracey,

      I haven’t worked on this site specifically but all of these larger projects are quiet similar with there medicals.
      The minimum requirements you will fill out a questionaire, this will cover your health history, your work history and your lifestyle habits.
      The examination will be comprehensive- blood pressure, hearing, vision, heart, tummy, limbs, spine and joints.

      More detailed medicals also cover the following – Lung Function testing, urine checked for drugs & alcohol and maybe even sugar & blood. Finally there’s a chance you may need to perform a physical fitness assessment, this may be done on a treadmill and/or a functional capacity assessment, assessing your lifting and carrying capacity.

      I hope this gives you a good idea mate.

      Cheers,

      Owen @ Cribhut

  13. jeff

    Hi. Ive been chasing work as a driver or general labourer in mining projects. I have worked as a drillers assistant Previously but looking for FIFO jobs is tough. I have my HC licence and blue card construction. I find applying through company websites doesnt get me anywhere. Any suggestions on how i can improve my odds without actually having onsite contacts to push my application through?

    • Owen

      Hey Jeff,

      It’s always good to speak with the HR staff directly and introduce yourself. They’ll normally tell you to register your interest on their career portal.
      Once you are at this stage it is extremely important to have a resume that matches the job you’re applying for.

      If you are going for a Drillers Assistant position, base your previous experience around this, same goes with applying for a TA position.
      A lot of the time it’s about timing as well, so register early and continue to log into your profile every week or two. Also give the recruiter a call every couple of weeks and continue to enquire about any positions going.

      It’s a hard road mate, unfortunately if you don’t know anybody to push your name forward these methods work best.

      Cheers,

      Owen @ Cribhut

    I am a rigger adv, and also have a few more tickets, alike Scaf adv, Fork lift, CN, Ewp, and i would like to work in Darwin, fly in, fly out, What is the steps that i have to do………………………………..thanks …………………………Tony

  15. Mark Bowden

    Hi Owen, you seem to be a mine of information so perhaps you can help. I have just finished working on construction of APLNG jetties in Gladstone driving workboats and am now looking for something similar anywhere in NT or WA. Can you advise on the marine based contractors for any of these projects. Much appreciated.
    Regards
    Mark Bowden

    • Owen

      Hey Mark,

      I don’t know of anything on the boil, I’ll throw the question over to some of Cribhut’s Delos in those states mate and see what comes of it.

      Cheers,

      Owen @ Cribhut

  16. Chris

    I am a qualified boilermaker with an intermediate riggers ticket as well as EWP and working at heights tickets. I was wondering on how I could get a start on this project.
