Project - Bass Strait Development
The Bass Strait Development involves the development, production and processing of crude oil and gas from a range of offshore fields connected by a 600-km network of pipelines to onshore processing plants at Longford, Victoria.
There are 23 offshore platforms and installations in Bass Strait, constructed from the 1960s through to the 2010s. Production commenced in 1969. Development of the Kipper and Turrum fields in recent years has seen the newest addition of the Kipper subsea installations and Marlin B platform in 2013.
Ongoing operational, maintenance, and construction (brownfields) activities are conducted on these facilities and pipelines, as well as wellwork operations on the platforms.
