Ichthys leaves South Korea bound for WA

Written on the 28 April 2017

A once-in-a-lifetime migration of LNG production vessels from Korea has begun, with waters off WA the destination.

The Ichthys Explorer, the offshore central processing facility for the Inpex-led LNG project, has sailed from Samsung Heavy Industry's Geoje shipyard. The world's biggest ever vessel, Shell's 488m Prelude floating LNG facility, is waiting its turn at the same shipyard.

The second Inpex vessel, the 336m Ichthys Venturer, is nearing completion less than 20km away in a Daewoo shipyard.

An Inpex spokesman confirmed the central processing facility had set sail and marine traffic monitoring website Vessel Finder showed the Ichthys Explorer, the world's biggest semi-submersible platform, being towed south by four tugs and due to arrive at the Ichthys field, about 200km off the Kimberley coast, on May 30.
