Ichthys Project releases Invitation to Tender for Central Processing Facility

Posted 1 November 2010

The Ichthys Project (INPEX Browse, Ltd. 76%, Operator, and Total E&P Australia 24%) today released the Invitation to Tender (ITT) for the semi-submersible Central Processing Facility (CPF) to be located at the Ichthys Gas Field (WA-37-R) in the Timor Sea, approximately 200 kilometres off the northwest coast of Australia.

INPEX Australia President Director Seiya Ito said the release of the ITT for the CPF’s engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract was a significant step toward the delivery of the world-class Ichthys LNG project.

“The issue of the invitations to tender is the culmination of many months of hard work by the project team for what is an exciting, complex and challenging endeavour,” Mr Ito said.

“Today, INPEX and Total have confirmed the real potential of Ichthys to significantly build the capacity of the Australian LNG industry to play a role in global energy security.”
