Shell in ‘significant’ gas discovery offshore Australia

Shell has made a “significant gas and condensate discovery” with the Bratwurst-1 well located in the Browse Basin off the North West Coast of Western Australia.

Shell submitted an environment plan for the drilling of the Bratwurst-1 well in January 2019 and gained approval in May 2019.

Shell said last Friday that the drilling of the Bratwurst-1 exploration well, within title AC/P64 , was concluded on December 4, 2019 after a 78-day campaign.

This campaign was completed in just over 18 months from bidding and 12 months from award of the AC/P64 title. Shell has a 100% interest in the license.

This discovery is located 160km north east of the Shell-operated Prelude FLNG facility and presents an opportunity for a future tie-back to Prelude. It supports Shell’s growth plans for more and cleaner energy, with LNG being the predominant focus for Shell in Australia.

“Gas is a core component of our strategy to provide more and cleaner energy solutions” said Zoe Yujnovich, Executive Vice President, Shell Australia.

“Today’s announcement shows how, through exploration, we are building a strong pipeline of discoveries to support our assets in Western Australia.”
