The Marlin Complex EP covers all activities relating to hydrocarbon production from the Marlin facilities and transport of hydrocarbons in the associated pipelines. The Marlin Complex consists of the Marlin A (MLA) and Marlin B (MLB) platforms bridge-linked to each other. The two platforms are operated as an integrated facility. The Marlin Complex is located within Production Area VIC/L03 approximately 42 km off the Gippsland coast in approximately 59 m of water depth. The MLA platform is connected to the shore by the MLA-Shore500 pipeline (Pipeline Licence VIC/PL2) and to the HLA-VS1-600 pipeline at the MLA Tee by the MLA-MLATee-300 (Pipeline Licence VIC/PL11). The MLB platform is connected to the Snapper platform by the MLB-SNA450 pipeline (Pipeline Licence VIC/PL41). Ongoing operational, maintenance, and construction (brownfields) activities will be conducted on these facilities and pipelines over the next five years, as well as wellwork operations on the platforms.
