Ichthys hits 100 cargoes

A $55 billion project, Ichthys faced a number of delays during the construction period but officially opened in November 2018.

INPEX President Director Australia Hitoshi Okawa said the 100th cargo was a credit to the project’s workforce.

“INPEX-operated Ichthys LNG facilities are safely ramping up to full production, exporting 100 LNG, 24 liquefied petroleum gas and 46 condensate cargoes since October 2018,” said Mr Okawa.

“Our priority is to ensure our LNG facilities in Australia are fully utilised over their expected 40-year lifespan.”

The capacity Ichthys’ onshore production facility is 8.9 million t, coming from two LNG processing trains, which can produce 100,000 bbl/d of condensate at peak and 1.65 million t/a of liquid petroleum gas.

Approximately 70 per cent of the LNG produced by Ichthys is exported to Japanese customers.
