Japan’s Inpex has chosen maritime software, services, and data analysis provider NAPA to deliver performance monitoring for all of its LNG carriers servicing the Ichthys project offshore Australia.

NAPA said that Inpex awarded a deal to the company for the provision of a solution for monitoring and follow-up of ship operations on two LNG carriers built to service the Ichthys project and one LNG carrier for Shell’s Prelude FLNG project.

The system will be installed on the Oceanic Breeze, Pacific Breeze, and Symphonic Breeze. The trio is considered to be amongst the world’s largest MOSS-type LNG carriers.

With offshore production facilities located in the Browse Basin, about 200 kilometers off the coast of Western Australia, Ichthys is one of the world’s most complex LNG projects and is expected to operate for the next 40 years.

At full capacity, Ichthys will produce 8.9 million tonnes of LNG per year, along with about 1.65 million tonnes of liquefied petroleum gas and about 100,000 barrels per day of condensate at peak. Ichthys adds a major new source of LNG supply equivalent to more than 10 percent of the annual LNG import volume of Japan – the world’s largest LNG importer.

Ichthys project is a joint venture between Inpex, major partner Total, Taiwan’s CPC Corporation and the Australian subsidiaries of Tokyo Gas, Osaka Gas, Kansai Electric, Chubu Electric Power and Toho Gas.
