AMJVs Johannes Schmidt with trainees Jensen Taiapa-Skinnon and Luke Tran. ichthysproject.com For 36 Territorians, a training program funded by the INPEXoperated Ichthys LNG Project has opened the way to new job opportunities. The fit-for-purpose insulation training program was delivered by AGC Meisei Joint Venture (AMJV). AMJV has been awarded a painting, surface protection, fireproofing and insulation contract on the Ichthys LNG Project in Darwin. The trainees undertook five days of training and upon completion were qualified to apply for an insulator position with AMJV. Program participant Jensen Taiapa-Skinnon had worked on the Projects construction workforce before undertaking the AMJV program. Im a machine operator and have been working as a Trades Assistant on the Projects product storage tanks, Mr TaiapaSkinnon said. The AMJV training was excellent and gave me a new pathway to gain more experience. INPEX General Manager Darwin Sean Kildare welcomed the Project-funded AMJV program. INPEX is committed to creating more opportunities for locals to get access to training so they can target new job opportunities, Mr Kildare said. Upskilling for the future A non-venomous Childrens python (Antaresia childreni) took up residence in the INPEX Operations complex. Slithery surprise all in a days work Working side by side with some of the Top Ends fauna is all part of a days work at Bladin Point. There have been regular wildlife sightings during the construction phase including crocodiles, dingoes, flying foxes and sea eagles. Now the INPEX Operations team is putting their wildlife handling training into practice as well. INPEXs Health Safety and Environment Team Lead, Lance Kenny, was recently called on to remove a non-venomous Childrens python (Antaresia childreni) that had decided to take up residence in the operations complex. Birds are nesting in the gardens, and as more animals take up residence, snake numbers will probably increase, Mr Kenny said. He carefully caught the snake, placed it in a snake handling kit and relocated it to a safe and quiet place. A number of INPEX employees have been specially trained and are permitted to safely handle and relocate wildlife. http://www.ichthysproject.com
