HIMA to support safety instrumented systems Ichthys LNG Project in Australia

January 10, 2018 - As a provider of smart safety solutions, HIMA has signed a long term service contract with INPEX to support the maintenance of the safety instrumented systems at the Ichthys LNG Project in Australia.  HIMA is stepping up to provide a comprehensive safety service framework.  HIMA has been engaged in work on the Ichthys LNG Project since 2009 and supplied the safety instrumented system, fire and gas systems, emergency shutdown, high-integrity pressure protection system, among others. 

Moving into the operational stage, HIMA is now continuing the relationship with INPEX on the Ichthys LNG Project, having secured a long term service contract. HIMA will be responsible for supporting INPEX in maintaining the safety instrumented systems on Ichthys LNG including the supply of parts, and services to ensure that the safety system is operating at its optimum.

Operated by INPEX, a Japanese exploration and production company, the Ichthys gas field represents the most extensive discovery of hydrocarbon liquids in Australia in more than 50 years.  The Ichthys LNG development includes both offshore and onshore facilities consisting of a floating production storage and offloading vessel, central processing facility and onshore LNG plant, with an accompanying 890 kilometres of subsea pipeline. 
The INPEX-operated Ichthys LNG is expected to produce up to 8.9 million tons of LNG and 1.6 million tons of LPG at peak annually, with up to 100,000 barrels of condensate per day at peak. 

Touching on the collaboration with HIMA, INPEX’s Graham Ison, ‎Operations Principal Instrument and Control Engineer, said: “As we get closer to the plant start up and into the operational phase, we have signed a long term service contract with HIMA to support the maintenance of the safety instrumented systems across Ichthys LNG. This contract is important to us as we look forward to safe, reliable and efficient operations.”
