ENSCO 5006 Commences Development Drilling at Ichthys LNG Project

Japan's Inpex Corporation (Inpex) announced the Inpex-operated Ichthys LNG Project commenced drilling at the Ichthys gas-condensate field, about 124 miles (200 kilometers) off the Western Australian coast.

The first development well was spud Feb. 3 by the Project’s development drilling rig ENSCO 5006 (DW semisub), which recently arrived at the field after undergoing major upgrades in Singapore. The ENSCO 5006 will soon be joined by an additional rig, which will also take part in the drilling campaign. Managing Director Ichthys LNG Project Louis Bon said the safe start to the drilling campaign was another major milestone for the Project.

“Today we officially mark the beginning of our development drilling program after years of intensive optimization studies and detailed planning,” Bon said.

“This campaign will target the Brewster reservoir with 20 production wells. The wells will be drilled into reservoirs about 13,123 to 14,764 feet (4,000 to 4,500 meters) beneath the seabed.” Natural gas and other produce lifted from the development wells will be transported via subsea production facilities to the offshore Central Processing Facility, where gas and condensate will be separated and processed.

The gas will then be exported to the onshore LNG plant via a pipeline for production of LNG, LPG, etc., while the condensate will be stored on the Floating Production, Storage and Offloading facility and loaded onto tankers for export.
