Darwin, Australia – A landmark celebration has officially opened the onshore LNG processing facilities of INPEX-operated Ichthys LNG – one of the largest and most complex resource developments in the world.

Japanese, Australian and Northern Territory government representatives unveiled a plaque to commemorate four decades of future benefits Ichthys LNG will bring to the Northern Territory, Australia, Japan and the region.

Symbolising the collaboration inherent in global enterprises on the scale of Ichthys LNG, Mr Hiroshige Sekō, Japanese Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry, Senator the Hon. Simon Birmingham, Australian Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment, Senator the Hon. Matthew Canavan, Australian Minister for Resources and Northern Australia and The Hon. Ken Vowles MLA, Northern Territory Minister of Primary Industry and Resources united to declare the site officially opened.

INPEX CEO, President and Representative Director, Mr Takayuki Ueda said today’s official opening was the culmination of a truly remarkable global enterprise over the last 20 years, and paid tribute to all involved.

“We are standing here today thanks to the contributions of tens of thousands of people drawn from many nations across the world.” Mr Ueda said.

“Ichthys LNG is an iconic project. We are very proud of the economic and social contributions INPEX and Ichthys LNG have made to date – along with 40 years of future operations that will provide lasting economic and social benefits for Australia and energy security for Japan.”

Approximately 70 per cent of the LNG produced by Ichthys LNG is scheduled to be supplied to Japanese customers. Ichthys LNG will help to meet growing energy demand in the region, while contributing to the Australian way of life.
