Australian operator Vocus has connected its North-West Cable System (NWCS) to the Inpex-operated Ichthys LNG Project and Shell's Prelude FLNG facility located off the north-west coast of Australia. The North-West Cable System, recently constructed by Vocus in partnership with Shell and Inpex, comprises 2,100km of submarine cable between Darwin to Port Hedland. The system can deliver speeds of up to 40 Gbps to both Inpex and Shell facilities. The NWCS has been designed to enable data connections to other hydrocarbon prospects along the cable route.
