We’re pleased to see that the Ichthys LNG has officially started to send through its production of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from its offshore location.
Total, one of the biggest international oil and gas companies, is working with various other companies on the project and has announced that the first cargo of LNG from Ichthys LNG has left Darwin, North Australia. LNG is currently being produced from the first liquefaction train from Ichthys with the second train expected to start within the next couple of weeks.
Ichthys LNG will hold over three billion barrels of oil including 500 million barrels of condensate from its base off the coast of Western Australia. The offshore facilitation and the two-train onshore liquefaction plant will supply 8.9 million tonnes of LNG per year as well as 100,000 barrels of condensate and 1.65 Mt/y of liquefied petroleum gas per year to Australia.
Having supplied our world class external fire and blast walls and modular solutions to be used on the project, we’re glad to see that the project is making headway. If you would like to read more about our work on the Ichthys LNG project, read our case study.
