Mr Bruce Lake
Vermilion Oil and Gas Australia Pty Ltd (VOGA) periodically conducts well construction operations in Permit Area WA-14-L using a Mobile Offshore Drilling Unit (MODU). Well construction operations planned over the next five years involve the drilling and, possibly, completing of new wells, or the re-entering, side-tracking and recompleting of existing wells.
The Permit Area (WA-14-L) is located in Commonwealth waters in the Carnarvon Basin off the northwest coast of Western Australia (WA), approximately 80km northwest of Dampier and 110km northeast of Barrow Island. The Wandoo facilities, including the Wandoo A Monopod, Wandoo B Platform, Catenary Anchor Leg Mooring (CALM) buoy (single point mooring tanker mooring and offloading facility) and anchorage are located within the Permit Area in water depths of approximately 54m.
The frequency of campaigns vary depending on a range of operational and commercial factors, however, VOGA would expect to undertake a campaign in 2015 with an additional two or three campaigns proposed in the next five years. Each of these will take up to 100 days to complete.
