CEA was employed to receive cargo consisting of modules and steel gas spools and apply full quarantine procedures in accordance with DAFF (Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry) regulations and prepare the cargo for shipping to Darwin, Australia. The parts are to be used in the construction of a new Gas Processing Plant at the Ichthys Project.


All cargo was received into CEA’s consolidation facility in Laem Chabang and recorded. The containers that would be used for shipping were also inspected and recorded. CEA’s quarantine compliance area was cleaned and prepared to receive the cargo, Cislin 25 was administered throughout, rat bait boxes and salt traps surrounding the compliance area were also replenished.

All cargo was cleaned with pressure washers and detergent then placed on concrete blocks inside the quarantine area, a further application of Cislin 25 was applied to the surfaces of the cargo.
Each container to be used was cleaned using the same process, Cislin 25 was applied to the inside of each container to eradicate any remaining insects. All containers were placed in a separate quarantine area.

CEA fabricated several packing frames from timber that had been treated and fumigated to kill any insects, the frames would ensure safe transit of the cargo.

The modules and gas spools were stuffed into the containers and secured in place with Cordex strapping. wooden chocks were installed on four sides of the cargo to prevent acceleration or braking forces causing possible damage during transit.

Fumigation through the use of Bug Bombs was used in each container. The containers were sealed with their appropriate shipping tags and readied for transportation.
