The Patricia and Baleen field is located in water depths of approximately 54 m in Vic/L21, approximately 25 km off the coast from Marlo in East Gippsland, Victoria, in the eastern waters of Bass Strait.
The Patricia Baleen offshore assets consist of:
The Patricia-2 and Baleen-4 wells, which are shut-in; and
A 24 km subsea pipeline and umbilical cable connecting the Patricia-2 and Baleen-4 wells to the Patricia Baleen Gas Plant.
The scope of this EP covers the non-operational phase of the offshore facilities for a period of up to 5 years. As the pipeline and wells are shut-in, operational activities are limited to vessel operations including visual inspection, maintenance and repair activities to maintain integrity of the asset.
