Inpex-operated multi-billion dollar Ichthys LNG project in Western Australia is on target for first production in the third quarter of 2017.
The construction of the LNG export project is 87 percent complete, Japans’ Inpex said through its social media on Friday.
One of the world’s largest LNG developments, Ichthys was initially scheduled for start-up at the end of this year, however, in September last year, Inpex delayed the project start-up, also raising the production 6 percent from 8.4 mtpa to 8.9 mtpa of LNG.
The project involves gas from the Ichthys field in the Browse Basin off north-west Australia being exported to the onshore processing facilities located at Bladin Point near Darwin via a 889km pipeline.
