HIMA supports safe and secure operations at Ichthys LNG

HIMA has signed a long-term service contract with INPEX to support the maintenance of the safety instrumented systems at the Ichthys LNG Project, providing a comprehensive safety service framework. HIMA has been engaged in work on the Ichthys LNG Project since 2009 and supplied the safety instrumented system, fire and gas systems, emergency shutdown and high-integrity pressure protection system.

Moving into the operational stage, HIMA is now continuing the relationship with INPEX on the Ichthys LNG Project, having secured a long-term service contract. HIMA will be responsible for supporting INPEX in maintaining the safety instrumented systems on Ichthys LNG including the supply of parts, and services to ensure that the safety system is permanently operating at its optimum.

Operated by INPEX, Japan’s largest exploration and production company, the Ichthys gas field represents the most extensive discovery of hydrocarbon liquids in Australia in more than 50 years. The Ichthys LNG development includes both offshore and onshore facilities consisting of a floating production storage and offloading vessel, central processing facility and onshore LNG plant, with an accompanying 890 km of subsea pipeline.

The INPEX-operated Ichthys LNG is expected to produce up to 8.9 million tons of LNG and 1.6 million tons of LPG at peak annually, with up to 100,000 barrels of condensate per day at peak.
