About the Ichthys LNG Project
The Ichthys LNG Project is a Joint Venture between INPEX group companies (the Operator), major partner TOTAL group companies and the Australian subsidiaries of Tokyo Gas, Osaka Gas, Chubu Electric Power, Toho Gas and CPC.
INPEX acquired an exploration permit for a block offshore Western Australia in an open bid conducted in 1998. INPEX confirmed the presence of gas and condensate sufficient for commercial development in the block through its exploration and appraisal works. Front End Engineering and Design (FEED) works began in 2009. INPEX obtained the necessary government approvals, concluded LNG SPAs with the gas buyers before INPEX made the Final Investment Decision (FID) in January 2012.
Gas from the Ichthys Field, in the Browse Basin offshore Western Australia, will undergo preliminary processing offshore to remove water and raw liquids including condensate.
The gas will then be exported to the onshore processing and liquefaction facilities in Darwin via an 889km pipeline. The Ichthys LNG Project is expected to produce 8.4 million tonnes of LNG and 1.6 million tonnes of LPG per annum, along with approximately 100,000 barrels of condensate per day at peak.
Detailed Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) of the Project is now ongoing and the production will start by the end of 2016.
