Ichthys LNG Project - enduring benefits for Broome and the Kimberley region

Written on the 1 August 2016

Ichthys LNG Project - enduring benefits for Broome and the Kimberley region The INPEX-led Ichthys LNG Project is bringing a multitude of economic and social benefits to Broome which will contribute to both the town and surrounding Kimberley region for decades.

As the closest mainland town to the Ichthys Field, Broome serves as a vital logistics hub for the Project's offshore activities.

INPEX is currently the biggest user of both the Broome International Airport, which serves as a transit point for Project personnel going to and from the offshore facilities, as well as the Port of Broome for the sea delivery of supplies and equipment to the Project's offshore operations.

In addition to the direct economic benefits as a consequence of the Project, many Broome businesses have won work supplying goods and services to Project contractors resulting in the creation of local jobs and training opportunities. Examples of local businesses obtaining work through Project contractors include various catering, transportation, accommodation and other support service providers.
