Japan’s Inpex has shared a video of the sailaway of the Ichthys Explorer, a central processing platform destined for the Ichthys offshore gas field in Australia.
Inpex said on Friday the CPF sailed away from its construction site in Geoje, South Korea en route to the Ichthys field.
The unit sailed away following the completion of shipyard commissioning and preparation work.
The Ichthys Explorer will be towed to the Ichthys field over a period of approximately one and a half months, after which it is scheduled to undergo hook-up. The facility will then separate and process the produce lifted from subsea production wells into gases and liquids over 40 years of continuous operation.
