INPEX has announced that the INPEX-operated Ichthys LNG Project has commenced production of gas from the wellhead following the completion of final safety verifications including additional verifications concerning electrical equipment.

The produced gas will be gathered within the Central Processing Facility (Ichthys Explorer) where it will be separated into gases and liquids. Thereafter, the liquids will be piped to the nearby Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) facility (Ichthys Venturer) while the gases will be transported via the 890-km long Gas Export Pipeline (GEP) to the onshore gas liquefaction plant at Darwin in Australiaís Northern Territory.

At the FPSO, the condensate contained in the well fluids will be processed to remove water and other impurities, then stored in tanks prior to export by tankers. At the onshore gas liquefaction plant, gases will be processed to remove impurities after which any remaining condensate will be extracted. The gases will then be separated and liquefied to produce liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) to be stored in tanks and shipped in sequence.

The Project expects to begin the shipment of products(1) towards the end of the first half(2) of the current fiscal year.

(1) Products will be shipped in the order of condensate, liquefied natural gas (LNG) and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG)
(2) April to September 2018

INPEX will continue to work toward the success of the Ichthys LNG Project with the understanding and cooperation of all its stakeholders, including the projectís joint venture partners, the local communities, the Australian federal government and the governments of Western Australia and the Northern Territory.

The forecasted consolidated financial results for the year ending March 2019, which factor the Projectís expected revenue contributions, are currently being evaluated taking into account the oil price outlook and other factors, and will be announced immediately if forecasts are revised.
