Strike, AGIG Partner for West Oz Gas Infrastructure Project
Sydney-listed Strike Energy has partnered with gas infrastructure company, Australian Gas Infrastructure Group (AGIG), to build, own and operate the gas plant to process gas from West Erregulla project, it said on May 20 in a statement.
The 50 terajoules/day plant will be built adjacent to the West Erregulla gas field with a raw gas trunk line connecting to the upstream development and will process raw gas to sales specifications before delivering it into Western Australia’s gas transmission network, Strike said. AGIG will invest more than A$200mn (US$131mn) in the project. Production of gas is targeted for the first half of 2022.
Earlier this week, Strike’s partner in the West Erregulla project, Warrego Energy, said an independent assessment has placed 2C gas resources at the central area reservoir of the West Erregulla field in Western Australia at 513bn ft3.
Warrego and Strike each own a 50% stake in the EP 469 permit containing West Erregulla. They discovered the field in the onshore Perth basin in November last year, with Strike hailing it was one of the largest conventional gas finds ever to be made onshore Australia.
