Ichthys

The Ichthys LNG Project is a Joint Venture between INPEX group of companies (the Operator) and Total group of companies.

INPEX intends to install a floating central processing facility (CPF) to develop the Ichthys Offshore Field. The greater part of the condensate will be transferred from the field via a subsurface pipeline to a nearby floating production; storage and offtake (FPSO) facility where it will be treated and transferred to offtake tankers for export. Natural gas from the field will be directed through an approximately 850km long gas export pipeline from the field to the onshore facilities in Darwin for processing into LNG and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG).

The resource estimates for the Ichthys Field are 12.8 trillion cubic feet of natural gas and 527 million barrels of condensate. The Project is expected to produce more than 8 million tonnes of LNG and 1.6 million tonnes of LPG per year. It will also produce 100 000 barrels of condensate per day at peak.
