Inpex: World’s largest semi-submersible platform safely moored in Ichthys Field

The INPEX-operated Ichthys LNG Project’s Central Processing Facility (CPF) has been safely moored in the Ichthys Field, some 220 kilometres off the north coast of Western Australia, where she will be located for 40 years.

The massive CPF (named the Ichthys Explorer) is the world’s largest semi-submersible platform, weighing 120,000 tonnes and with a topsides footprint measuring 130 metres by 120 metres.

“The safe and efficient mooring of the Ichthys Explorer in the 250-metre deep waters of the Ichthys Field, marks another significant milestone for the INPEX-operated Ichthys LNG Project,” Mr Louis Bon, Managing Director, Ichthys LNG Project stated.
