Picture of the day: Ichthys LNG plant taking shape
The construction on the onshore part of the US$34 billion Ichthys LNG project, operated by Inpex, is progressing well.
Since breaking ground at Bladin Point in Darwin three years ago, the Ichthys LNG project onshore landscape has transformed and an LNG plant is rapidly emerging.
According to Inpex, dozens of huge pre-fabricated modules weighing thousands of tonnes have been arriving since June last year — around 70 to date. In all, Darwin will receive more than 200 modules, some weighing as much as 6,500 tonnes.
Civil works have completed, and focus is shifting to the mechanical and electrical phase. The two condensate tanks and two LPG tanks are also taking shape, Inpex said.
When completed, the Project’s onshore facilities will include: two LNG processing trains, LPG and condensate plants, product storage tanks, a combined cycle power plant, administration facilities, utilities and a product load out jetty.
The LNG processing trains will have the capacity to produce 8.4 million tonnes of LNG per annum.
