Woodside to start Angel field development

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Dec. 19 -- Woodside Energy Ltd. reported that development of Angel gas and condensate field off Western Australia will begin immediately following final investment decisions by North West Shelf Venture participants (OGJ Online, Nov. 1, 2005).

The $1.6 billion (Aus.) project will include installation of an offshore production platform—the venture's third major structure on Australia's North West Shelf—and associated infrastructure.

The remotely operated processing platform will be in 80 m of water about 49 km east of the venture's North Rankin production facility, to which it will be connected by a new pipeline. The 7,500-tonne jacket substructure and 7,000-tonne topside are expected to be fully operational by the fourth quarter of 2008. Eight drilled and grouted, piled foundations weighing more than 3,000 tonnes each will secure the jacket to the seabed.

Three production wells will be drilled in 2006-07. The processing unit will have a capacity of 800 MMscfd of gas and 50,000 b/d of condensate.

Equal partners in the North West Shelf Venture are Woodside Energy (operator), BHP Billiton (North West Shelf) Pty. Ltd., BP Developments Australia Pty. Ltd., Chevron Australia Pty. Ltd., Japan Australia LNG (MIMI) Pty. Ltd., and Shell Development (Australia) Pty. Ltd. CNOOC NWS Private Ltd. is a member of the venture but does not hold an interest in its infrastructure.
