Activity Description

Woodside is submitting a revision of the North West Shelf (NWS) Project’s Angel Platform Operations Environment Plan in accordance with the Offshore Petroleum and Greenhouse Gas Storage (Environment) Regulations 2009 (Cth).
The Angel platform is located in Commonwealth waters about 125 km north-west of Karratha in Western Australia and has  been operating since 2008. The facility’s current Environment Plan was approved in 2013. The current Environment Plan is required to be revised every five years.
Angel is an offshore not normally manned (NNM) production platform that produces dry gas and condensate from the Angel reservoir. Gas and condensate from this reservoir is processed on the Angel platform then transported via an export pipeline to the North Rankin Complex, and then onshore to the Karratha Gas Plant (KGP) for processing.
The Angel platform is more than 195 m tall and stands in a water depth of 80 m. The platform combines production facilities, utilities and temporary living quarters for maintenance activities.
Angel has three production wells, and has a daily production capacity of up to 21,500 tonnes of gas and up to 5,270 tonnes of condensate.
The Angel platform is marked on nautical maps surrounded by a 500 m exclusion zone to shipping.
The platform and associated subsea infrastructure is situated in Production Licence WA-3-L and Pipeline Licence WA-14-PL.
