Engineering students at Charles Darwin University have toured the Ichthys LNG Project’s onshore facilities at Bladin Point in Darwin.

The 20 students attended the tour after participating in an INPEX survey about the North Australian Centre for Oil and Gas (NACOG) at Casuarina campus.

CDU School of Trades and School of Engineering and Information Technology staff also participated in the survey and accompanied students on the tour.

The survey was designed to find out about the benefits that NACOG was providing to staff and students.

INPEX General Manager External Affairs and Joint Venture Bill Townsend said the tour was one of many ways the company was building and maintaining its relationships with the Darwin community.

“The tour gave future civil, mechanical, process and chemical engineers an opportunity to see what a mega-project looks like from the ground up,” Mr Townsend said.

In 2012, the Ichthys Joint Venture contributed $3 million towards the construction of the NACOG facility.
