LNG Industry,

Vocus Group Limited has announced the successful connection of its high-speed fibre-optic North-West Cable System (NWCS), to the INPEX-operated Ichthys LNG project and Shell’s Prelude FLNG facility located off the North-West coast of Australia.

Recently constructed by Vocus in partnership with Shell and INPEX, the NWCS comprises 2100 km of submarine cable between Darwin and Port Hedland.

The system can deliver speeds of up to 40GB/s to both INPEX and Shell facilities and serves to increase the reach and resiliency of the Vocus network in Australia.

The NWCS has been designed to enable high-speed data connections to other key hydrocarbon prospects along the cable route.
