The Inpex-led Ichthys liquefied natural gas project (LNG) in Australia remains on course to start production by the end of this month, contrary to reports of additional delays. 

Reuters reported last week that the LNG project had already started trial operations at the liquefaction and export plant located near Darwin.

Responding to LNG World News, an Inpex spokesperson said on Tuesday that the Ichthys LNG project was moving towards production start-up.

“There is no change to the plan to begin production from the wellhead, after which, condensate, LNG and LPG will be shipped out in sequence,” the spokesperson said.

The project initially targeted a start-up in the third quarter of 2017, however it was pushed back to the end of March this year.

Nearing the end of last year, the project’s two offshore facilities the floating production, storage and offloading facility (FPSO) Ichthys Venturer, and the central processing facility (CPF), the Ichthys Explorer have been moored at their respective locations in the Ichthys field, 220 kilometers off the north coast of Western Australia.

Once the production starts up, the Ichthys LNG project 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.

4th Annual Upstream West Africa Summit 2018

In June 2018, Senegal will play host to the No.1 Annual B2B Upstream Oil & Gas event, which will bring together the senior decision makers from across the prolific West Africa region to discuss the trends and challenges currently facing the Oil and Gas industry.

Since the discovery by Tullow Oil in 2007 of the Jubilee Field in Ghana, the Upstream sector has refocused its efforts to explore similar plays around the entire West and North West African coast. These efforts were rewarded with Cairn Energy’s prolific discovery in 2014 followed by Kosmos’ in 2015. The West Africa region has the industry’s spotlight firmly focused on further unlocking the potential of this largely underexplored region.

Companies that will be looking toward further unlocking the deepwater hydrocarbon potential of West Africa include: PETROSEN, BP, Kosmos Energy, Cairn Energy, FAR, Total E&P, Premier Oil, Shell, Tullow Oil along with the Ministries and key solution providers.
