Strike secures environmental approval for South Erregulla gas field
Strike Energy has received primary environmental approval for its Phase 1 40 TJ/d development of the South Erregulla gas field in Western Australia, it said on November 14.
The approval comes after the company was recently granted a production licence for the field, which is 100% owned and operated by Strike Energy. The issuance of the South Erregulla approval completes the primary government approval process required prior to a final investment decision.
The South Erregulla gas field development is part of Strike Energy's government-endorsed gas acceleration and development strategy which aims to provide incremental gas supply into a tightening Western Australian market.
Strike earlier this year launched its gas acceleration strategy post-receipt of A$136mn ($92mn) in proceeds from the sale of its Warrego Energy shares. The company is targeting up to four sources of gas production - Walyering, Ocean Hill, and the South and West Erregulla gas fields - to come online by the end of 2025, commencing with Walyering.
