Towing time to the Ichthys gas-condensate field offshore Western Australia will take about 45 days. The CPF, known as the Ichthys Explorer, will separate and process production from subsea wells into gases and liquids.

The project’s floating production, storage, and offloading facility, known as the Ichthys Venturer, is also scheduled to be towed to the field and undergo hook-up (OGJ Online, May 16, 2016).

Operator Inpex and partners are also proceeding with construction of the onshore natural gas liquefaction plant outside Darwin in Australia’s Northern Territory.

Production of condensate, LNG, and liquefied petroleum gas is expected to begin during Inpex’s fiscal year that ends Mar. 31, 2018.
