The Ichthys Project is a world-class project to develop a gas and condensate field approximately 130 miles (200km) off the north-west coast of Australia.
The project, which is operated by INPEX, is a joint venture with major partner Total and various Japanese and Taiwanese gas companies and is due to start production in 2016.
The project, which is the first of its size to be operated by a Japanese company, has installed more than 500 SharpEye IR3 flame detectors, accompanied by more than 200 SafEye Open Path Gas Detectors.
Spectrex is a technology leader in optical flame and open path gas detection (OPGD). Our patented optical UV/IR and IR3 flame detector designs, and pioneering patented Xenon Flash designs in OPGD detectors are now the standard for oil & gas projects.
A wide range of flame detectors are available, from ultra-fast (msec) detection time to high-sensitivity hydrocarbon and hydrogen flame detection, alongside the equally large OPGD range that can detect hazardous gases, from flammable hydrocarbons to toxic ammonia and hydrogen sulfide.
All Spectrex products can operate in the toughest conditions, from African deserts to Alaskan waters and are fully approved to meet relevant third-party Ex-hazardous area, performance and reliability standards to the wide range of application challenges, worldwide.
