Aqualis Offshore completes Ichthys Venturer FPSO station keeping job

Ichthys Venturer

28 August 2017 – Marine and offshore engineering consultancy Aqualis Offshore has successfully completed its position keeping role for the Ichthys Venturer FPSO which is now fully moored in Australian waters.

On 14 August, operator INPEX announced that the Ichthys Venturer FPSO had arrived in Australian waters, 220 kilometres off the north coast of Western Australia.

Aqualis has since then managed the position keeping procedure and provided position keeping masters offshore while the FPSO was secured with a 21-line mooring system.

The Ichthys Venturer FPSO is 336 metres long and will be permanently moored on a turret for the life of the project, about 3.5 kilometres from the field’s central processing facility (CPF), Ichthys Explorer.

Aqualis Offshore’s Singapore office provided the position keeping services as a sub-supplier to POSH Terasea Offshore Pte Ltd. POSH Terasea Offshore Pte Ltd managed the successful 5,600-kilometre towage of the Ichthys Venturer and Ichthys Explorer from South Korea, to the Ichthys Field.

“In June, we successfully executed the position keeping job for the Ichthys Explorer CPF, the world’s largest semisubmersible platform. Now we have managed the position keeping of the 336-metre Ichthys Venturer FPSO. Developments like the INPEX-operated Ichthys LNG Project are the reason why many of us work in the offshore oil and gas industry, and we are very proud to have played a part in this,” says Phil Lenox, director – Asia Pacific, Aqualis Offshore.

Aqualis Offshore is a specialised marine and offshore engineering consultancy focusing on the shallow and deep-water segments of the offshore oil and gas industry. It is part of Oslo-listed energy consultancy group Aqualis ASA.
