NT News

The voice of the Territory.

The NT News is committed to providing Territorians with the best in local news, sport, entertainment and agenda setting journalism.

The NT News is known internationally for its unique and ‘talked about’ front pages, and it delivers on that in spades, but that personality is balanced with the best political, business and local news in the Territory which helps it to remain a part of reader’s daily routine.

The NT News and Sunday Territorian share a personal connection with readers that’s evident in the way that they engage with us. Readers regularly send photos of their kids and pets, share their romantic Territory sunsets with us and call when they have a local issue that needs attention.

It’s that connection that transfers to advertising within our products. Through print and online, the NT News, Sunday Territorian and our free community newspaper the Suns reaches 85% of the NT population every month and we continue to offer new and innovative ways for advertisers to engage with those readers. We’ve added new creative advertising options including booklet, scented or shaped ad-notes, creative shapes and mini-wraps, designed to meet a variety of business objectives.

Across all print and digital products, we continue to offer compelling content that Territorians turn to each and every day.


The Ichthys LNG Project is a project led by INPEX (operator, participating interest: 62.245%) alongside major partner TOTAL (participating interest: 30%), and the Australian subsidiaries of CPC Corporation Taiwan (participating interest: 2.625%), Tokyo Gas (participating interest: 1.575%), Osaka Gas (participating interest: 1.2%), Kansai Electric (participating interest: 1.2%), JERA (participating interest: 0.735%) and Toho Gas (participating interest: 0.42%).

The project involves liquefying natural gas lifted from the Ichthys gas-condensate field offshore Western Australia at an onshore gas liquefaction plant constructed in Darwin, Northern Territory, and producing and shipping approximately 8.9 million tons of LNG and approximately 1.65 million tons of LPG per year, along with approximately 100,000 barrels of condensate per day at peak.

The Ichthys LNG Project is a large-scale LNG project by global standards, and is expected to be operational over a period of 40 years.

In 1998, INPEX acquired an exploration permit in the block where the project is located, and following development studies including exploration, evaluation and FEED work, the company announced its final investment decision (FID) in January 2012.
