Oil and Gas

Multi-disciplinary engineering expertise for complex industrial projects

50 years of dedication

ICD’s foundations were laid in the Oil Refining industry in Australia. We’ve been part of the evolution of the industry, and we’ll be around for the next phase of changes into the future.

ICD’s expertise in hydrocarbons processing, fuels storage and transfer is unrivalled in the Australian marketplace, allowing us to become a trusted advisor to many of Australia’s oil and gas companies.

As specialists in Brownfields design, engineering and project management, we’ve tackled just about every kind of challenge imaginable, while delivering on our core focus of safety, quality and Excellence in Engineering.

Project Management

ICD have a long history of managing projects on behalf of clients. We work closely with clients to ensure that projects are delivered incident-free, on-time, in budget and within scope. We can fulfill any or all project management functions on behalf of our clients including:

  • Health and Safety
  • Procurement, Cost & Schedule Control
  • Management of Change
  • Quality Assurance, Contract Administration
  • Completions and Precommissioning activities

Commissioning & Shutdown management

ICD provides facility solutions that range from complex design modifications through to new multi-million dollar plants, facilities revamps and shutdowns.

Our approach fosters a strong business alignment and partnership to ensure that we understand our clients operations and risk profile.

Most importantly, safety is our number one priority and focus, and we understand the importance of working safely within complex hazardous process plants & factilities.


ICD have an established history of effectively delivering engineering consulting services to Australasian Refineries with many of our personnel being integrated into our clients own teams.

We offer a solid understanding of production processes, equipment, and business processes and procedures involved in refining operations. We also understand the interdependence of the pipelines and distribution networks that connect with a refinery and provide supporting services to these areas.

We are able to construct and maintain the assets that we design and have been providing maintenance, turnaround and construction services to refineries for much of our 50 year history.

ICD are able to deliver programs of work ranging from a large number of small, brownfield projects through to high value investment projects such as the establishment or expansion of facilities and major revamps.

Gas Facilities

We  support  our clients in the  decision making process from feasibility through to detailed  design, including the detailed specification and procurement for compressor and pumping packages. 

We  conduct  lifecycle analysis to determine the optimum configuration and sizing of compression equipment, taking into account client operating philosophy and availability requirements. 

Our experienced team of engineers study the dynamic behaviour of gas compression facilities. We undertake full compressor surge analysis to minimise the likelihood of trips, whilst maximising  capacity from installed units. 

Performance and Safety

ICD’s expertise in both steady state and dynamic process simulation maximises our clients operating  profits and mitigates process safety risk. For example, we have experience in troubleshooting quality issues such as gas dryness, TEG carryover, and regenerator performance for gas dehydration facilities and can provide  independent  technical expertise to review designs and equipment specifications. 

We provide validation of existing over-pressure protection devices  and flare disposal systems to achieve and document the maximum safe capacity of these unit operations. This enables gas facilities to be upgraded with minimal investment, and crucially without  compromising safety.
