Australian Offshore LNG Project Chooses Intergraph Software

December 19, 2012

Intergraph® SmartPlant® Enterprise selected by operator, Inpex (I8U.F), to manage information for mega-project, Ichthys LNG.

Inpex has implemented SmartPlant Enterprise solutions for the Ichthys LNG Project, including SmartPlant Enterprise for Owner Operators (SPO) as its information management system, SmartPlant 3D and SmartMarine® 3D (collectively known as Smart 3D), SmartPlant Instrumentation, SmartPlant P&ID and SmartPlant Electrical.

The Ichthys LNG Project is a joint venture between Inpex and Total (TOTB.F), Tokyo Gas (TOG.BE) and other participants. Gas from the Ichthys field, in the Browse Basin approximately 200 kilometers offshore Western Australia, will undergo preliminary processing offshore to remove water and extract condensate. The condensate will be pumped to the FPSO facility anchored nearby, from which it will be transferred to tankers for delivery to markets.

The gas will be exported to onshore processing facilities in Darwin via an 889-kilometer subsea pipeline. The Ichthys LNG Project is expected to produce 8.4 million tonnes of LNG and 1.6 million tonnes of LPG per annum, along with approximately 100,000 barrels of condensate per day at peak.

"Intergraph technology combined with our drive towards consolidating our handover documentation in the Intergraph environment is fundamental to delivering our vision of an integrated information management system with a single point of access," said Conor Walker, Operations Director of the Ichthys LNG Project. "We anticipate an expanded role for Intergraph tools as the project progresses into the operating phase, leveraging from the increasing volume of data held in the engineering data warehouse, which has been built on the SmartPlant Enterprise for Owner Operators platform."
