The Ichthys LNG project is expected to produce 8.4 million tonnes of LNG and 1.6 million tonnes of liquefied petroleum gas per annum, along with approximately 100,000 barrels of condensate per day at peak.

  • 1.86 miles (3 kilometers) of technologically advanced smooth bore 10" flexible gas export risers,
  • 1.86 miles (3 kilometers) of 12" production risers.
