Offshore staff

TOKYO – The central processing facility (CPF) for the Ichthys LNG project off northwest Australia has been launched from the offshore floating dock at the Samsung shipyard in Geoje, South Korea.

According to Ichthys operator INPEX, the operation was completed within two days. The CPF is currently berthed quayside at the shipyard where operations continue to lift and install the living quarters and integrate and commission all equipment in preparation for sail away of the platform.

The completed CPF will be towed 5,600 km (3,479 mi) to the Ichthys field in the Browse basin where it will be permanently moored for the projected 40-year lifespan of the development.
