Northern Territory Communities
The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin, is home to the Ichthys LNG onshore processing facilities and support facilities at Bladin Point.
National and international attention turned to Australia’s most northern capital city in November 2018 when celebrations, to mark the commencement of Ichthys LNG production, brought together two Prime Ministers. The Prime Minister of Japan, the late His Excellency Mr Shinzo Abe and former Australian Prime Minister, the Hon. Scott Morrison MP offered their congratulations and support for the global project.
Employment and business
‘We’re here for the long haul’ means we’re committed to long-term employment and business partnerships with Territorians. An ACIL Allen economic impact assessment has estimated a potential 600 new jobs a year over the life of Ichthys LNG, which is also is forecast to generate around A$ 2.6 billion in tax revenue for the Northern Territory.
Education and training
More than A$ 9 million has been invested in education and training facilities, with potential for people to further their studies or create a successful career in our industry.
Our partnership with Traditional Owners
The formation of the historic Larrakia Ichthys Foundation Trust agreement directly supports Larrakia people for at least 40 years. And, the INPEX Larrakia Advisory Committee is going strong and will continue throughout the four decades of Ichthys LNG’s operations.
