MELBOURNE, Dec. 15 -- ARC Energy Ltd., Perth, has brought on stream Xyris gas field in the northern Perth basin in Western Australia. Xyris is flowing 9.3 MMcfd.

The gas flows through the Parmelia pipeline to Perth and southwestern Western Australia.

Xyris field, discovered in April, is the first greenfield gas development in the Perth basin since the nearby Beharra Springs field began production in 1990.

ARC has a 50% interest in Xyris, with Origin Energy Developments Pty. Ltd., Sydney, holding the other 50%.
