Ichthys FPSO ar­rives in Aus­tralia

The Australian Energy Review - - NEWS -

THE In­pex-op­er­ated Ichthys project has reached an­other mile­stone, with the ar­rival of the Float­ing Pro­duc­tion, Stor­age and Of­fload­ing (FPSO) fa­cil­ity from South Korea.

On 14 Au­gust, the 336 me­tre long ves­sel ‘Ichthys Ven­turer’ en­tered Aus­tralian waters, with hook-up and com­mis­sion­ing ac­tiv­i­ties now un­der­way.

“The FPSO has been de­signed to hold 1.12 mil­lion bar­rels of con­den­sate and op­er­ate for 40 years in a cy­clonic en­vi­ron­ment, set­ting new bench­marks for dura­bil­ity,” Ichthys project man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Louis Bon said.

“Ichthys Ven­turer joins the Ichthys LNG Project’s Cen­tral Pro­cess­ing Fa­cil­ity (CPF) – the Ichthys Ex­plorer – the world’s largest semisub­mersible plat­form that was safely moored in the Ichthys Field re­cently.”
