The INPEX-operated Ichthys LNG Project’s Floating production, storage and offloading facility (FPSO) was safely moored today in the Ichthys Field, 220 kilometres off the north coast of Western Australia. The massive 336-metre long FPSO, named Ichthys Venturer, is longer than three soccer fields and is an engineering masterpiece, designed for 40 years of operations without dry dock. “The safe and efficient mooring of the Ichthys Venturer in the 250-metre deep waters of the Ichthys Field heralds another successful milestone for the INPEXoperated Ichthys LNG Project,” Mr Louis Bon, Managing Director Ichthys Project stated. “Completing the complex operation of connecting 21 pre-installed mooring chains, weighing more than 15,000 tonnes, from the seabed to the FPSO is testament to the well-coordinated work of our personnel, including contractors and subcontractors from around the globe,” Mr Bon said.
