INPEX marks 100th cargo for Ichthys LNG

INPEX has shipped the 100th cargo of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the Ichthys LNG onshore processing facilities near Darwin in the Northern Territory.

The milestone cargo represents a significant milestone for company, coming just 13 months after the maiden LNG cargo was shipped last year, INPEX president director Australia Hitoshi Okawa said.

“Reaching the 100th LNG cargo milestone is a credit to our workforce and reinforces our position as a safe, reliable and efficient energy supplier,” Okawa said.

“INPEX-operated Ichthys LNG facilities are safely ramping up to full production, exporting 100 LNG, 24 liquefied petroleum gas and 46 condensate cargoes since October 2018.

“Ichthys LNG creates jobs and business opportunities and is projected to generate further economic and community benefits in Australia for decades to come.”

Ichthys LNG represents the single largest overseas investment by a Japanese company.

Okawa said Ichthys LNG was central to INPEX’s operations in Australia and formed a cornerstone of the company’s global energy business.

“Our priority is to ensure our LNG facilities in Australia are fully utilised over their expected 40-year lifespan,” he said.
