Strike Energy Ltd. has started exporting sales gas into the Parmelia gas pipeline from the Walyering gas field development onshore North Perth basin of Western Australia, said partner Talon Energy Ltd. in a September 26 release.
Gas is being sold into the Santos Ltd. gas sales agreement under the commissioning provisions (OGJ Online, Dec. 14, 2022). A ramp up in production toward nameplate capacity is expected over the coming week, and firm gas sales are expected to begin in October.
Walyering wet gas field permit EP447 was originally deemed sub-commercial until Strike took over the permit and farmed-out a 45% non-operated interest to Talon in 2020 in exchange for a $6 million (Aus.) carry in a new appraisal well. The JV drilled a successful appraisal with Walyering-5 in December 2021 and followed up with a secondary gas find in Walyering-6 in May 2022.
Both wells were successfully flow tested and the results have been used to design gas processing and condensate storage at the field.
Strike is operator with 55% interest. Talon Energy holds 45% interest.
