Activity Description

The Northern Endeavour Floating Production Storage and Offloading (NE FPSO) facility has been in production since 1999. The NE FPSO is located offshore in the Timor Sea approximately 550 km West North West of Darwin and 250 km East South East of Kupang in West Timor. The NE FPSO is situated within the Scheduled Area for the Australian Commonwealth Territory of Ashmore and Cartier Islands. It produces oil from the Laminaria-Corallina fields located in petroleum production licence area AC/L5. The oil produced, stored and offloaded at the NE FPSO, is classified a light crude oil. Crude oil produced from topsides processing is stored in 12 tanks, with a total capacity of 1.4 million barrels. Loading the crude oil tanks is a continuous process during normal operations. Produced water is treated by hydrocyclones before disposal to sea in accordance with the Oil in Water (OIW) requirements outlined in this Environment Plan (EP).
