Cooper basin Western Flank oil line back in service

By OGJ editors

Santos Ltd. has returned its Tantanna to Gidgealpa crude oil pipeline in Australia’s Cooper basin to service at 5,500 b/d of throughput, reported Beach Energy Ltd., Adelaide.

The Beach-operated, 6,000 b/d PEL 92 crude oil pipeline from Callawonga field to Tantanna has remained fully operational while the Tantanna-Gidgealpa pipeline was out of service, Beach noted.

In addition to the Tantanna pipeline, Beach is considering trucking early in 2012 to maximize oil production from its Western Flank operations. This will be underpinned by completion of the Parsons-3, 4, 5, Butlers-2, 3, 4, Germein-1, and Elliston-1 wells in coming months and the new Butlers facility, expected to come on line in December 2011.

The growth of oil production from the Western Flank of the Cooper Basin is a key focus for Beach. To this end, Beach is in the process of planning the construction of a 50-km, 8,000 b/d oil pipeline from Growler field, operated by Senex Energy Ltd. and in which Beach has 40% interest, to Lycium that will tie into a new 15,000 b/d trunk line from Lycium to Moomba.
