Icthys Gas Pipeline is an operating oil pipeline in Australia.
The pipeline runs from the Icthys gas field offshore western Australia to Darwin, Western Australia. The exact route of the pipeline is on p.12 of INPEX's January 2017 Environment Plan Summary for the project.

The pipeline was completed in 2015 and commissioned in July 2018 with the commissioning of the Icthys LNG facility.
In August 2018 it was reported that a plan for INPEX to spend $34 million to protect marine megafauna off the Northern Territory, which was negotiated by the Labor government in 2012 as part of a deal to offset damage from the Icthys project, was several years behind schedule. INPEX previously tried to renege on the agreement in 2016.
