Wholly located within Commonwealth waters, approximately 390 km north of Derby, Western Australia in the North-west Marine Region (NWMR) of the Timor Sea.
Preparing the CPF and FPSO for the introduction of reservoir hydrocarbons, inclusive of testing and commissioning with non-field hydrocarbons.
Preparing subsea infrastructure for the introduction of reservoir hydrocarbons, inclusive of testing and commissioning with non-field hydrocarbons.
Conveyance of fluids, comprising gas, hydrocarbon condensate, MEG and produced water from the reservoirs by means of the subsea infrastructure to the CPF and FPSO.
The FPSO regenerates monoethylene glycol (MEG) used during processing so that it can be recycled back to the subsea production system and wells.
Start-up and operation of the CPF and FPSO using reservoir hydrocarbons, including transfer of condensate via an offtake hose to a shuttle tanker; and gas export up to the GEP.
IMR activities on the CPF, FPSO and subsea infrastructure, excluding well intervention or well workover activities.
Expected activity commencement:
The Ichthys Project has a design life of 40 years. This EP will cover continuous operations, 24 hours per day, for a period of up to 5 years from acceptance of this EP.
The activity description and location map have been extracted from the environment plan submitted.
