ABERDEEN, UK – Xodus Group has secured a AUS$1.5-million ($1.1-million) contract to deliver a suite of more than 40 offshore operating manuals for the INPEX-operated Ichthys LNG project offshore Western Australia.
Specialists from Xodus Group’s Perth operation are drafting these key training and reference materials to be used by the offshore operations crew. The project is on track for completion by the end of the year.
First production from Ichthys is scheduled for 2017. At peak, the project is expected to produce 8.9 MM metric tons of LNG and 1.6 MM metric tons of LPG per annum, along with approximately 100,000 b/d of condensate.
Gas and condensate from the Ichthys field will undergo initial processing on the offshore facilities, prior to being transported to the onshore LNG plant near Darwin. Most of the condensate will be directly shipped to global markets from an FPSO facility permanently moored near the Ichthys field in the Browse basin.
