INPEX has completed the first shipment of condensate from its LNG project offshore northwest Australia. The Ichthys field’s subsea wells are at a water depth of 260 m. The cargo departed from the floating production, storage, and offloading vessel Ichthys Venturer and is destined for the Asian market. Later this year, shipment of cargo will begin from Bladin Point near Darwin in northern Australia, with LNG and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) exports to follow. At peak levels, INPEX expects offshore facilities to produce up to 8.9 million metric tons per annum (mtpa) of LNG and up to 1.65 million mtpa of LPG, and up to 100,000 B/D of condensate. INPEX’s partners in the project are Total, CPC Corp. Taiwan, Tokyo Gas, Osaka Gas, Kansai Electric Power, JERA, and Toho Gas.
