World’s largest semi-submersible platform arrives in Australian waters The INPEX-led Ichthys LNG Project is celebrating the safe arrival of its central processing facility (CPF), the world’s largest semi-submersible platform, in the Australian waters of the Browse Basin today. 

The massive CPF (named the Ichthys Explorer) weighing 120,000 tonnes and with topsides measuring 130 metres by 120 metres, reached her final destination, 220 kilometres off the north coast of Western Australia, where she will be located for 40 years. 

“The safe completion of the 5,600 kilometre tow of the Ichthys Explorer from South Korea to the Ichthys Field, located 450 kilometres north of Broome, is another significant milestone for the Ichthys LNG Project,” Mr Louis Bon, Managing Director, Ichthys LNG Project stated. 

“The successful 34 day tow is a tribute to our world-class processes and the commitment of our personnel from around the globe” Mr Bon said.
