GE has opened a new oil and gas facility in Broome, Western Australia, specifically designed to service subsea projects. The regional facility will support the offshore installation phase of the INPEX-operated Ichthys LNG project, which includes local support for the preparation, storage and routine maintenance of subsea equipment supplied by GE Oil & Gas.
'The establishment of the Broome facility represents an exciting milestone for our business in Australia,' said Mary Hackett, GE Oil & Gas 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.'
'This facility has been built by locals, it is supported by local businesses and services, and the GE team members live in Broome. As part of the community, we look forward to providing year-round support to our customers during project development and ongoing operations,' Ms Hackett said.
