Woodside’s North Rankin B gas project comes on stream

Woodside Petroleum Ltd.’s $5 billion (Aus.) North Rankin B project offshore Western Australia has been brought on stream and is sending gas to the Burrup Peninsula gas plant.

The development involved installation of a second platform (the 650,000-tonne North Rankin B) beside the original North Rankin A structure and a modification of the latter.

The second platform will aid the recovery of about 5 tcf of low-pressure gas reserves in the North Rankin and nearby Perseus fields.

The new development maximises the value of the major North West Shelf Gas Project by extending resource life and supporting the joint venture’s onshore gas commitments.

Joint venture partners include BHP Billiton, BP PLC, Chevron Corp., and Royal Dutch Shell PLC.

Since 1989, the NWS Project has exported more than 3,200 LNG cargoes to the Asia-Pacific region.
