Stage 1 Expansion
The Waitsia Stage 1 project, completed in 2016, connected two wells via 7 km of flowline to the refurbished Xyris Production Facility (XPF), which had been in care and maintenance since 2010.
The Stage 1 Expansion upgraded the capacity of the XPF to 20 TJ/day and a 4 km lateral pipeline was installed to connect to the nearby Dampier to Bunbury Natural Gas Pipeline. The expansion also connected the nearby Waitsia-02 Well.
The expansion project construction work commenced in Q1 2020 and was completed in Q3 2020. Stakeholder engagement was undertaken and regulatory approvals were progressed to meet this schedule.
A gas sales agreement with Alinta Energy in in place to supply of up to 20 TJ/day of gas from the Waitsia gas field. The contract commenced August 2020 with a duration of 4.5 years.
