Gas production has commenced at the Woodside Petroleum-operated Greater Western Flank Phase 2 Project, under budget and ahead of schedule.
Located off the northwest coast of Western Australia, the development includes eight wells from the Keast, Dockrell, Lady Nora, Pemberton, Sculptor and Rankin fields sitting approximately 40–60 km southwest of the Goodwyn A Platform.
Woodside CEO Peter Coleman said the project had been delivered $630 million under budget and six months ahead of schedule.
“The project team has done an outstanding job executing and delivering Greater Western Flank Phase 2, which represents the next phase in gas supply to the North West Shelf Goodwyn A platform, extending the life of the Karratha Gas Plant and contributing to Woodside achieving our targeted production of 100 MMboe in 2020,” he said.
“This success has been achieved by combining the two Greater Western Flank Phase 2 drilling campaigns, accelerating project work packages and collaborating closely with our contractors.
“The capabilities demonstrated on the Greater Western Flank Phase 2 Project will be carried forward as we embark on our next phase of growth, including our proposed developments of the Scarborough and Browse offshore gas resources.
“The Scarborough and Browse projects are part of our vision for the Burrup Hub, which would unlock the future value of the Karratha Gas Plant and Pluto LNG.”
The Greater Western Flank Phase 2 development is a joint venture of BHP Billiton Petroleum, BP Developments Australia, Chevron Australia, Japan Australia LNG (MIMI) and Shell Australia, with all six partners owning an equal stake of approximately 16.67 per cent.
