Activity Description
The Seahorse / Tarwhine Plug and Abandonment campaign will utilise the Noble Tom Prosser Jack Up Rig to permanently plug and abandon the Seahorse (SHA) and Tarwhine (TWA) subsea wells. This campaign will take place in Production Licences VIC/L1 and VIC/L18 located in the Gippsland Basin of eastern Bass Strait. The SHA and TWA wells are located 15 and 23 km off the Gippsland coastline respectively, south of Lakes Entrance in a water depth of ~43m. The activity is expected to commence in September 2020 and be completed no later than September 2021. It is expected to take approximately 30 days per well to complete P&A activities, inclusive of rig positioning activities, dependent on weather, scheduling and well conditions.
