Toll drills deeper into Inpex logistics needs
Inpex has turned to Toll for its new base

Toll has sealed a logistics project deal with Japanese international energy company Inpex worth 90 million over 10 years.

Toll will design, construct and operate the Inpex-operated Ichthys LNG Project’s offshore logistics base in the Northern Territory, as well as provide ongoing logistical support for the project in the Browse Basin, located off the northern coast of Western Australia.

"The variety of work we’re doing for the Inpex Offshore Logistics Base is an excellent example of Toll’s capabilities in servicing the oil and gas sector," Toll Global Resources CEO David Jackson says.

"This facility, along with the associated drilling support facility, developed for Inpex in Broome by the Toll Mermaid joint venture, demonstrates Toll’s commitment to invest in world-class facilities for our customers’ world-class projects."

The base will remotely support major offshore facilities in the Ichthys Field, which is about 820 km southwest of Darwin in the Browse Basin.

This will include supplying materials to the project’s floating production, storage and offloading vessel and central processing facility.

Toll will own the Inpex -dedicated facility, which will be used for the storage and distribution of spares, equipment and chemicals.

The base will be located in Darwin’s East Arm Business Park Precinct.

Construction is expected to be completed in early 2015, with the facility expected to be fully operational later that year.
