Inpex Holdings Inc., Japan's largest oil explorer, selected the Maret Islands off Australia's northwestern coast as its preferred site for the liquefied natural gas project. The plant will use Inpex's 100 percent owned Ichthys field in the Browse basin north of Broome about 200 kilometres offshore in water depths between 90m and 340m. The field is estimated to hold more than 9.5 Tcf of natural gas and 312 million barrels of condensates. In September 2006, French operator Total bought a 24% stake in the project.
Apache is progressing with a standalone floating production, storage and offloading vessel on the Theo-Van Gogh discoveries in the deep-water Exmouth sub-basin. The field is in 350m water depth.
The owners are operator Apache with a 52.5% working interest, and Japan's Inpex with 47.5%. The Van Gogh oil field has reserves of roughly 59 million barrels, with production forecast to last 12 years.

In 2006, Nexus sold the rights to the gas in the Crux field to Shell for US$40 million (A$53 million). The agreement provides for Nexus to be able to execute its condensate recycle project until 31 December 2020 at which time Shell will take ownership of the permit and will be able to extract the gas and any remaining condensate.
