Stage 1A will see the Waitsia-1 and Senecio-3 gas wells connected to the refurbished Xyris Production Facility, with treated gas from the facility to be delivered to the 416 km, 350 mm Parmelia pipeline for domestic consumption.
Engineering, execution and management costs for Stage 1A of the project are estimated to be around AU$17.5 million gross.
Construction work will include two four inch flowlines from the wellheads to a northern gathering manifold and a six inch pipeline to transport the gas to the Xyris facility.
Front-end engineering and design (FEED) studies have been completed, and an engineering, procurement, and construction management (EPCM) contractor has been selected.
The pipeline licence and the environment plan for the in-field gas pipeline have been approved.
