Challenge Peak, an oil products tanker operated by Singapore-based NYK Bulkship (Asia), has shipped the first batch of plant condensate produced at the onshore gas liquefaction plant of the INPEX-operated Ichthys LNG Project.
The condensate was loaded from the gas liquefaction plant in Darwin in the Northern Territory of Australia, and the vessel departed for an Asian country on December 26.
The Ichthys LNG Project, one of the largest LNG projects in the world, is expected to produce approximately 8.9 million tons of LNG and approximately 1.65 million tons of LPG per annum, along with approximately 100,000 barrels of condensate per day.
In November this year, Ichthys LNG Project started shipment of LPG from the liquefaction plant in Darwin. The first shipment loaded on board LPG carrier Hellas Gladiator departed Darwin on November 16, 2018, destined to an Asian buyer.
