AWE Limited reveals that the AWE-Operated L1/L2 joint venture has made the Final Investment Decision (FID) for Stage 1A of the Waitsia gas field development project, located in the onshore Perth Basin, Western Australia.
Stage 1A comprises the installation of new infrastructure and upgrades to existing assets that will connect the recently flow tested Waitsia-1 and Senecio-3 gas wells to the Xyris Production Facility (XPF). Treated gas from XPF will be delivered to the Parmelia pipeline for domestic consumption.
Engineering, execution and management costs for Stage 1A of the Waitsia gas project are estimated at gross $17.5 million ($9 million net to AWE). Construction work will include two four-inch flowlines from the well heads to a northern gathering manifold and a six-inch pipeline to transport the gas to XPF. FEED studies have been completed, and an EPCM contractor has been selected.
