Inpex has yet to start production from its Ichthys LNG project in Australia weeks after saying output would begin soon, Reuters reported on Tuesday.

“There are various minor issues to address in the final safety checks [...] but there are no major problems with the facilities. We can start production in the not-too-distant future,” Inpex’s new chief executive, Takayuki Ueda, told the newswire.

Inpex said at the end of May that it had finished commissioning the project’s central processing facility.
