The Ichthys project produces LNG at the 8.9 mtpa plant at Bladin Point near Darwin. The facility shipped in October its 300th cargo since start of operations in 2018.

Natural gas arrives in Darwin from the giant Ichthys field offshore Western Australia via an 890-kilometre export pipeline.

Ichthys is a joint venture between operator Inpex and major partner France’s Total. Other partners include Australian units of CPC Corporation Taiwan, Tokyo Gas, Osaka Gas, Kansai Electric Power, JERA and Toho Gas.
