Activity Description

Shell Australia Pty Ltd (SA) proposes to drill a single exploration well (to fulfil NOPTA permit award requirements) in the Petroleum permit AC/P64 as part of the Bratwurst-1 drilling campaign. The Bratwurst-1 exploration well will be located within the Northern Browse Basin in Commonwealth Waters with a water depth of approximately 155 m   Drilling is planned be carried out by a semi-submersible Mobile Offshore Drilling Unit (MODU or rig). If significant gas/condensate volumes are discovered during this campaign, there is a future potential for a tie-back to the Prelude facilities. The Prelude facility is located approximately 160 km southwest of the approximate well location. Drilling is proposed to commence as early as mid-2019.
