Ichthys offshore pipelay completed

Offshore pipelay has been completed for the Ichthys LNG project. Laying of the 42-in. gas pipeline began in June 2014.

The 890-km pipeline will deliver gas from Ichthys gas-condensate field offshore Western Australia to onshore gas liquefaction facilities at Bladin Point near Darwin, Northern Territory, for processing (OGJ Online, Sept. 25, 2015).

Inpex Corp., Tokyo, said the line is the “longest subsea pipeline in the southern hemisphere and the third longest subsea pipeline in the world.” Inpex is operator and 62.245% interest holder in the Ichthys LNG project.

The pipeline was installed by two Saipem barges.
