Inpex has announced a major construction milestone at its Ichthys LNG project, with the arrival of six large pre-fabricated modules.
The modules, weighing approximately 7500 t, are key components of the LNG project’s LNG processing facilities, which will eventually produce 8.4 million tpy of LNG and 1.6 million tpy of LPG.
The two shipments in March from STP&I and AG&P rounded out first deliveries from all four of the yards that are fabricating equipment for the LNG project’s onshore liquefaction plant.
Louis Bon, Managing Director Ichthys LNG Project, said: “With first arrivals from STP&I and AG&P, we’ve now seen nearly 60 large pre-fabricated modules delivered safely to site […] Many of these modules have been safely installed and many more are soon to be delivered, so we’re on schedule and very pleased with the progress.
“The modules are very large assemblies of structural, piping and mechanical equipment, some of which measure around 90 m in length and weigh the equivalent of 3600 family cars, so I’m very proud of our excellent safety record to date.”
