At least 600 staff have reportedly been stood down from the $36 billion Inpex gas project in Darwin over a contract dispute.

The ABC reports the workers have been stood down over a contract dispute between Kawasaki Heavy industries and construction group Laing O'Rourke.

Channel Nine Darwin is reporting the number of employees who have been sidelined could be as high as 850.

The two companies were jointly awarded a contract to construct a network of four massive cryogenic tanks for the project in 2012.
