Ichthys LNG development reaches another milestone

The Inpex group’s Ichthys LNG development in the Browse basin offshore Western Australia has recorded another milestone with the hull for the project’s condensate floating production, storage, and offloading vessel recently floated from the dry dock at the Daewoo Geoje shipyard in South Korea.

Prefabricated sections weighing a total of 60,000 tonnes were successively lifted into the dry dock and assembled to construct the FPSO’s 336-m hull.

Work will now begin on the fabrication and integration of the topsides, living quarters, and the installation of the turret. The latter is under construction in Singapore.

When completed, the FPSO will have storage capacity for more than 1 million bbl of condensate and have accommodation for a workforce of 200 people.

In Ichthys project will produce about 100,000 b/d of condensate at peak flow. In addition, there will be 8.4 million tpy of LNG produced from two trains at the LNG facility in Darwin along with 1.6 million tpy of LPG.

The gas-condensate reservoirs lie 200 km offshore Western Australia and contain an estimated 12 tcf of gas and 500 million bbl of condensate.
