Activity description

A revision to the Environment Plan has been submitted to allow for activities to occur in 2019.

Quadrant Energy is licensee of permit area WA-35-L and operates the Van Gogh, Coniston and Novara fields located within. These fields tie back to the existing Ningaloo Vision floating production, storage and offtake (FPSO) facility, which has been operating in the field since 2010.

Infill installation activities need to be undertaken to tie in additional wells to the FPSO.  The scope of this Environment Plan includes connecting the Van Gogh drill centre 2 manifold and two Christmas trees via the respective rigid tie-in spools, as well as connecting gas lift jumpers and the Electro-Hydraulic Flying Lead from the Christmas trees to the manifold. Testing and commissioning will also be completed.

Following completion of the activities under this EP, operation of the facility is covered under the NOPSEMA accepted Ningaloo Vision Operations EP (Commonwealth Waters).
