Woodside sticks to 2017 start-up date for Persephone gas field

Australian energy company Woodside is working to bring its Persephone gas project offshore Australia on stream next year.

According to the company’s third quarter report, Woodside is sticking to its recently announced plan to bring the field online in the second half of 2017.

To remind, the original plan had been to start Persephone gas production in early 2018, but this has been revised as Woodside has improved efficiency at the project.

The A$1.2 billion ($916 million) Persephone Project, approved in 2014, consists of two wells tied into a subsea production manifold with production fluids transported to the existing North Rankin Complex (NRC), part of the large North West Shelf project.

In its third quarter report, Woodside said that the company began reservoir drilling and completion activities at the Persephone field. This is ahead of the subsea installation campaign scheduled to begin in the fourth quarter of 2016.

“The project remains on budget and schedule for start-up in 2H 2017,” Woodside said on Thursday.

The Persephone gas field is located in offshore petroleum production license WA-1-L, some 135 kilometers, northwest of Karratha, Western Australia,  in a water depth of about 126 meters. The field was discovered in 2006 by the exploration well Persephone-1, which is located approximately 8 kilometers north-east of the North West Shelf Project’s North Rankin Complex.

The North Rankin Complex, which will take gas from the Persephone, is a single integrated facility comprising the interconnected North Rankin A (NRA) and North Rankin B (NRB) platforms and associated subsea infrastructure, including two export trunklines which run between NRC and the onshore Karratha Gas Plant (KGP).persephone-woodside
