MELBOURNE, Oct. 27 -- Nexus Energy Ltd., Melbourne, has brought on stream its wholly owned Longtom natural gas field in Bass Strait.
The company is now commissioning the production and processing system in coordination with Santos. Gas is being fed by a 19 km subsea pipeline into the Santos-owned former Patricia-Baleen production line to the Santos onshore facilities near Orbost in Gippsland, in eastern Victoria.
Longtom has 2P reserves of 350 petajoules of gas and 4 million bbl of condensate. Santos will buy the gas while Nexus will market the liquids separately.
