Ichthys at a glance gives you a quick overview of the key facts of our Ichthys LNG Project.
Located about 220 kilometres offshore Western Australia, Ichthys represents the largest discovery of hydrocarbon liquids in Australia in 40 years. The Ichthys LNG Project is currently in construction and is ranked among the most significant oil and gas projects in the world. The Ichthys LNG Project is effectively three mega-projects rolled into one, involving some of the largest offshore facilities in the industry, a state-of-the-art onshore processing facility and an 890 km pipeline uniting them for an operational life of at least 40 years.Next: Project facts
Natural gas and condensate from the Ichthys Field's subsea wells will undergo preliminary processing on the large, floating central processing facility (CPF), which will be permanently moored near the Field.
The CPF will extract condensate and water and remove impurities at the earliest opportunity to make the gas and some condensate suitable for transmission through the gas export pipeline.
Most condensate will be transferred from the CPF to the nearby floating production, storage and offloading facility for offshore processing.
The onshore processing facilities near Darwin will cool gas from the pipeline and transform it into liquid to reduce its volume for transport. Onshore facilities will include two LNG trains, LPG and condensate plants, product storage tanks, administration facilities, utilities and a jetty.
A gas export pipeline will deliver gas and some condensate from the CPF to the onshore processing facilities at Bladin Point near Darwin so that it can be prepared for export.
The fly-in fly-out construction workforce needed to complete the onshore facilities at Bladin Point will live in the purpose-built Manigurr-ma Village near Darwin that was opened in 2013.
