Inpex has shipped the first LNG cargo from its Ichthys plant in northern Australia, the Japanese company said on Tuesday.

The Pacific Breeze carrier is en route to the Inpex-operated Naoetsu terminal in Japan’s Niigata Prefecture with the debut cargo.

Ichthys has a capacity of 8.9 mtpa – equal to more than 10% of Japan’s annual LNG imports.
