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.

Global LNG: Adjusting to New Realities

Fri, Mar 20, 2015

Oil & Gas Journal’s March 20, 2015, webcast will look at how global LNG trade will be affected over the next 12-24 months by falling crude oil prices and changing patterns and pressures of demand. Will US LNG production play a role in balancing markets? Or will it add to a growing global oversupply of LNG for markets remote from easier natural gas supply? Will new buyers with marginal credit, smaller requirements, or great need for flexibility begin to look attractive to suppliers? How will high-cost, mega-projects in Australia respond to new construction cost trends?

US Midstream at a Crossroads

Fri, Mar 6, 2015

Oil & Gas Journal’s Mar. 6, 2015, webcast will focus on US midstream companies at an inflection point in their development in response to more than 6 years shale oil and gas production growth. Major infrastructure—gas plants, gathering systems, and takeaway pipelines—have been built. Major fractionation hubs have expanded. Given the radically changed pricing environment since mid-2014, where do processors go from here? What is the fate of large projects caught in mid-development? How to producers and processors cooperate to ensure a sustainable and profitable future? This event will serve to set the discussion table for the annual GPA Convention in San Antonio, Apr. 13-16, 2015.

This event is sponsored by Leidos Engineering.

The Future of US Refining

Fri, Feb 6, 2015

Oil & Gas Journal’s Feb. 6, 2015, webcast will focus on the future of US refining as various forces this year conspire to pull the industry in different directions. Lower oil prices generally reduce feedstock costs, but they have also lowered refiners’ returns, as 2015 begins with refined products priced at lows not seen in years. If lower per-barrel crude prices dampen production of lighter crudes among shale plays, what will happen to refiners’ plans to export more barrels of lighter crudes? And as always, refiners will be affected by government regulations, particularly those that suppress demand, increase costs, or limit access to markets or supply.
