Australian gas, condensate treating plant nears completion

OGJ editors

Empire Oil and Gas NL, Claremont, WA, is nearing completion on its Red Gully natural gas and condensate separation plant in Western Australia.

The plant will treat condensate and gas from the Gingin West-1 and Red Gull-1 discovery wells. Initial capacities will be 10 MMcfd and 500 b/d, to be doubled by a likely second train. Cost of the plant and related construction is estimated at $35.8 million.

Gas will be treated to meet specifications for flow, under a 20-year agreement, through the Dampier-to-Bunbury gas pipeline (OGJ Online, Dec. 29, 2006), which will be reached via a new 2-mile, 4-in., 30-MMcfd pipeline that is part of the project. Condensate will be stored and trucked to BP’s Kwinana, WA, refinery.   

The company statement said that, in addition to treating gas from the Gingin West-1 and Red Gully-1 discovery wells, the plant could be used to treat other nearby conventional and unconventional discoveries.

Discoveries at Gingin West-1 and Red Gully-1 in permit EP 389 led to gas that flowed at 12 MMcfd and up to 832 b/d from the Jurassic Upper Cattamarra Coal Measures.
