Safety solutions provider Hima has signed a long-term service contract with Inpex to support the maintenance of the safety instrumented systems at the Ichthys LNG project in Australia.
Hima has been engaged on the Ichthys LNG Project since 2009 and supplied the safety instrumented system, fire and gas systems, emergency shutdown, high-integrity pressure protection system, among others, the company said in a statement.
Moving into the operational stage, Hima will be responsible for supporting Inpex in maintaining the safety instrumented systems on Ichthys LNG including the supply of parts, and services to ensure that the safety system is permanently operating at its optimum.
Operated by Inpex, Japan’s largest exploration and production company, the Ichthys LNG development includes both offshore and onshore facilities consisting of a floating production storage and offloading vessel, central processing facility and onshore LNG plant, with an accompanying 890 kilometres of subsea pipeline.
The Inpex-operated Ichthys LNG is expected to produce up to 8.9 million tons of LNG and 1.6 million tons of LPG at peak annually, with up to 100,000 barrels of condensate per day at peak.
