INPEX-operated Ichthys LNG Project Floats World’s Largest Semi-submersible
INPEX CORPORATION (INPEX) announced the INPEX-operated Ichthys LNG Project safely launched its central processing facility (CPF) on September 19, 2015 from the offshore floating dock at the Samsung Heavy Industries shipyard in Geoje, South Korea, where it is being constructed.

INPEX President Director Australia Seiya Ito said the successful launch was one of the Project’s most significant achievements.

“To see this enormous facility in the water is a testament to those who have worked for years to make it a reality,” Mr. Ito said. “This milestone is a clear demonstration that the Ichthys LNG Project is making good progress and that we are working in an excellent spirit of cooperation with our Korean contractors.”

Managing Director Ichthys LNG Project Louis Bon expressed his congratulations to the Project and contractor teams for the excellent result.

“The operation was completed within two days in the safest conditions,” Mr. Bon said. “The CPF is now berthed quayside at the shipyard where work is continuing to lift and install the living quarters and integrate and commission all equipment in preparation for the CPF’s sail away. All teams are working together in a very efficient manner to achieve our next targets.”

Once completed, the CPF, which the Project began constructing in January 2013, will be towed 5,600 kilometers to the Ichthys Field in the Browse Basin, offshore Western Australia, where it will be permanently moored for the life of the Project – more than 40 years.

The Ichthys LNG Project is a large-scale LNG project by global standards, and is expected to be operational over a period of 40 years. In 1998, INPEX acquired an exploration permit in the block where the project is located, and following development studies including exploration, evaluation and FEED work, the company announced its final investment decision (FID) in January 2012
