Onshore LNG facilities
The Ichthys LNG Project announced Darwin as the preferred location for its onshore processing facilities in 2008.
Four years later, the Australian Prime Minister officially launched construction at the 361 hectare Bladin Point site at a ground breaking ceremony on 18 May 2012.
When completed, the Project’s LNG plant at Bladin Point near Darwin will cool gas from the Ichthys Field and transform it into liquid for transport. The gas will come to Darwin via the Project’s 890 kilometre gas export pipeline.
When completed, the Project’s onshore facilities will include: two LNG processing trains, LPG and condensate plants, product storage tanks, a combined cycle power plant, administration facilities, utilities and a product load out jetty.
The LNG processing trains will have the capacity to produce 8.9 million tonnes of LNG per annum. Lead onshore contractor, JKC Australia LNG (JKC), is responsible for construction of the Project’s onshore facilities.
