Toll opens logistics base for Ichthys LNG project

Toll Group has officially opened its offshore logistics base in Darwin, Australia, for the multi-billion dollar Ichthys LNG Project operated by Inpex, a Japanese oil company.

Toll designed, built and now operates the facility on a four-and-a-half ha site in Darwin’s East Arm. The base will support the Ichthys LNG Project’s major offshore facilities in the Ichthys Field in the Browse Basin, 820 km south west of Darwin.

Ichthys LNG Project Managing Director Louis Bon said the supply base will play a critical support role for the project. “With an operational life of at least 40 years and some of the largest infrastructure seen in the oil and gas industry, having a supply base that can provide maintenance, store critical spare parts and support brownfield work is vital to the project’s success,” Bon said.

Toll Resources & Government Logistics’ Chief Executive Officer, David Jackson, said the facility is a fine example of Toll’s ability to design customised logistics solutions to suit its customers’ long-term needs.
