LNG Industry,

The Ichthys LNG Project reached a major milestone on 27 July with the opening of the first offshore production well, marking the start of 40 years of operations of this gas and condensate field.

At full capacity, the offshore facilities are expected to produce 1600 million ft3/d of gas and 85 000 bpd of condensate. The gas will be exported to an onshore LNG plant which will produce 8.9 million tpy of LNG for supplying the Asian market; approximately 1.65 million tpy of LPG; as well as an additional 15 000 bpd of condensate.

"The start-up of production on Ichthys is a major achievement. Ichthys will be an important addition to Total’s portfolio in the fast growing LNG market and will also contribute to the group’s production and cash flow growth in the coming years”, commented Arnaud Breuillac, President Exploration & Production at Total.
