Activity Description

The Wheatstone Project will produce hydrocarbon fluids from offshore wells, transport fluids through flowlines to the Wheatstone Platform for initial processing, and transport gas and condensate through a pipeline to the onshore gas plant at Ashburton North, near Onslow for further processing. Resultant LNG and condensate will be exported by vessels to the international market, and gas will also be made available to the domestic market via a tie-in with the existing Dampier to Bunbury Natural Gas Pipeline. This Plan includes well intervention activities for the producing wells with either a Mobile Offshore Drilling Unit (MODU) or vessel; and infill drilling of <5 wells by 2022.  The operational area is within the 500 m drilling exclusion zone at well locations within the Wheatstone and Iago fields (production licences WA-46-L, WA-47-L, and WA-48-L). Well abandonment of  suspended well/s in the same licence areas is included.
