Location map - Activity: Ichthys Project - GEP Mechanical Completion (refer to description)

The Ichthys Field is located within the area covered by production licence WA-50-L, in the northern Browse Basin, approximately 210 km north west of the coast of mainland Western Australia and 820 km south-west of Darwin. Gas from the Ichthys Field will be transferred from the central processing facility via an 889 km gas export pipeline to an onshore processing plant at Bladin Point in Darwin.
The activities within the scope of this EP are limited to the flooding, cleaning and gauging (FCG) and hydrotesting of the gas export pipeline. These activities will result in planned discharges to Commonwealth water, originating within production licence WA-50-L at the pipeline end termination (PLET) location. Mechanical completion (post-lay FCG and post-lay hydrotesting) activities are scheduled to be performed between mid-2015 and mid-2016.
Pipeline installation activities are managed in a separate EP (refer to INPEX Offshore Gas Export Pipeline Environment Plan submitted by INPEX Operations Australia Pty Ltd). Support-vessel operations within the gas export pipeline construction corridor, which includes the PLET location, are also managed in that EP.
