Woodside is preparing an Environment Plan (EP) to undertake drilling activities within the permit WA-28-P. The EP proposes to undertake drilling of up to six wells (exploration and appraisal wells), including the Achernar exploration well. The proposed Petroleum Activities Program is located in Commonwealth waters on the continental slope, approximately 127 km north-west of Dampier. The closest landfall to the permit area are the islands of the Dampier Archipelago, which are approximately 85 km south south-east at the closest point. Water depths within the permit area range between from 100 m to 129 m.The proposed Petroleum Activities Program is scheduled to commence in Q2 2019.
