Australia’s offshore oil and gas regulator is considering enforcement action against Inpex’s Ichthys LNG project after discovering safety problems on the offshore gas platform, Reuters reported on Monday.

The National Offshore Petroleum Safety and Environmental Management Authority found “deficiencies in the suitability of electrical equipment in hazardous areas” during an inspection in late June, a representative told the newswire.

“Inpex has [...] delayed introducing hydrocarbons to the platform to address the identified deficiencies,” the representative said.
