INPEX’s Ichthys LNG has won the Northern Territory’s Engineering Excellence Award and been announced as a finalist for the Sir William Hudson Award.
Projects from each of Engineers Australia’s nine divisions are selected to win an Engineering Excellence Award following a judging process by an independent panel of experts.
One winner from each division is also selected as a finalist for the Sir William Hudson Award – the highest honour for a project awarded by Engineers Australia.
Engineers Australia Northern Division Manager Keely Quinn said the winners showcase outstanding achievement in engineering and the invaluable contribution engineering makes to the economy, community and the environment.
“Ichthys LNG has been steadily producing and offloading gas and condensate since October 2018 and is a worthy nominee for the national award,” she said.
“With an operational life of more than 40 years, the social, economic and technological contributions to Australia will be significant.”
Supplied by gas fields located offshore northern Australia, Ichthys has an onshore production facility in Darwin with a capacity of 8.9 million t from two LNG processing trains that can produce 100,000 bbl/d of condensate at peak and 1.65 million t/a of liquid petroleum gas.
Approximately 70 per cent of the LNG produced at the project is exported to Japanese customers.
