INPEX Australia (INPEX) has extended the IMS Consultancy Services Contract to include the provision of services for the offshore installation, hook up and commissioning (IHUC) phase of the Ichthys LNG Project.
Located 220 kilometres offshore Western Australia, Ichthys represents the largest discovery of hydrocarbon liquids in Australia in 40 years. Currently in construction, the Project costing in excess of US$34 billion is expected to deliver up to 8.9 million tonnes of LNG and 1.6 million tonnes of LPG per annum, as well as about 100,000 barrels of condensate per day at peak over an expected forty year life. At the centre of the Project’s offshore development is the world’s largest offshore semi-submersible production unit supporting hydrocarbon processing systems and utilities, the Central Processing Facility (CPF), Ichthys Explorer. After initial processing, the CPF will transfer condensate approx. 3.5 km to the Ichthys Venturer, a 336 metre long floating production, storage and offloading facility (FPSO), designed to hold 1.2 million barrels of condensate and operate for 40 years in a cyclonic environment.
