It is operated by INPEX as a joint venture with major partner Total and Tokyo Gas, Osaka Gas, Chubu Electric Power, Toho Gas and CPC Corporation Taiwan1. Challenges and Responsibilities in the Development Phase of the Ichthys LNG Project , a World-Class LNG Project Ichthys LNG Project Project Phase Development and Production Part2 Into the Development Phase with Full Consideration for Local Communities he Ichthys LNG Project is the first large-scale LNG project to be operated by a Japanese company. The final investment decision was made in January 2012 and the development phase started. The first production is expected by the end of 2016. Well streams will be processed at an offshore central processing facility (CPF) to remove liquids from the gas and the gas will be transported via an 889-km pipeline to the Ichthys LNG plant in Darwin, Northern Territory. The separated liquids will be sent to a floating produc tion, storage and offloading (FPSO) where the conden sate2 will be treated and transferred to carriers for delivery to markets. Detailed engineering and construc tion of the facilities are underway in various engineering offices and fabrication yards around the world. In Darwin, civil work at the LNG plant site has commenced and the accommodation village which will house 3,500 construction workers at peak is being built. The Ichthys LNG Project will help meeting the Asia Pacific regions increasing energy demand and will strongly contribute to a stable energy supply in Japan. It will also play an important role in the sustainability of local communities. In delivering this important project through to the production stage we will be securing a vital, long-term energy supply to Japan and our other customers while delivering sustainable economic and social benefits across Australia. INPEX is committed to contributing to the sustainable development of the communities in which we operate, improving social and economic well-being while minimising any impact on the environ ment. INPEX is also committed to maintaining its close cooperative approach with government, the community and our other key stakeholders in the areas of opera tions to deliver the Ichthys Project safely and on time.
