Strike, partner sanction Walyering gas project
Strike Energy and its joint venture partner Talon Energy have sanctioned the Walyering gas field in the Perth basin for development, the companies said on August 15.
The commissioning gas is expected to enter the upstream facility by the end of this year with first gas sales targeted in the first quarter of 2023. Strike operates the project with 55% interest and Talon owns 45%. The final investment decision was made following the completion of the recent independent certification of a 54.2 PJ 2P gas reserve for the Walyering gas field.
The National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago Limited (NGC) NGC’s HSSE strategy is reflective and supportive of the organisational vision to become a leader in the global energy business.
The full field development costs including well completion for the 33 TJ/d and 1,400 barrels storage facility are estimated to be A$14.4mn ($10mn). The development will consist of the completion of the Walyering 5 and 6 wells, with production processed on-site through a facility designed to process 33 TJ/d of gas and separate between 150 – 300 b/d of condensate which will be diverted to onsite storage, making it available for delivery to point of sale via truck transport from the Brand highway.
Gas production will initially be tied into the nearby Parmelia Gas Pipeline, with an ongoing review into the feasibility of connecting into the DBNGP (Dampier to Bunbury Natural Gas Pipeline) at a later date.
Power to the Walyering upstream facility will be provided by a solar array of 108 panels and accompanying battery storage.
