The Ichthys LNG Project - located offshore Western Australia - is a joint venture between INPEX group companies (the operator), major partner Total, CPC Corporation and the Australian subsidiaries of Tokyo Gas, Osaka Gas, Kansai Electric Power, Chubu Electric Power and Toho Gas.
One of the largest energy projects in the world, Ichthys features some of the biggest and most advanced offshore facilities seen globally, and massive onshore processing facilities.
Gas from the Ichthys field in the Browse Basin will undergo preliminary processing offshore to remove water, impurities and extract condensate. The gas will then be exported to onshore processing facilities in Darwin via an 889-km pipeline.
The Ichthys LNG Project is expected to product 8.4million tons of LNG and 1.6million tons of LPG per annum, along with approximately 100,000 barrels of condensate per day at peak. It has an expected operational life of at least 40 years.
