The Veolia MPPE unit will be used to treat the gas/condensate produced water stream on the FPSO.

The INPEX-operated Ichthys LNG Project will involve offshore preliminary processing of gas from the Ichthys field to remove water and extract condensate before being transported to onshore LNG processing facilities in Darwin via an 890 km pipeline.

The Ichthys LNG Project is expected to produce up to 8.9 million tons of LNG and 1.6 million tons of LPG per annum, along with approximately 100 000 barrels of condensate per day at peak.

“We are very proud to deliver this high-tech water treatment system to help INPEX achieve their ambitious goals,” said Erik Middelhoek, managing director of Veolia MPP Systems. “It was a challenging project with a fantastic end result.”
