ConocoPhillips Australia has taken another big step towards a Final Investment Decision early next year with the award of the gas export pipeline contract to Allseas
The Barossa Project is a gas and light condensate field located offshore about 300 kilometers north of Darwin, Northern Territory.
ConocoPhillips Australia Exploration submitted Barossa Gas Export Pipeline Installation Environmental Plan (EA) to NOPSEMA, Australian Offshore Regulator, on 2nd August, 2019.
The contract for the engineering, procurement, construction and installation of the 260-kilometer gas export pipeline was awarded to Allseas.
According to EA, the exact installation schedule has not been finalized, however installation activities are expected to occur between quarter 4, 2020 and quarter 1, 2024.
The Barossa project is currently in the front-end engineering design phase and includes a floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) facility, subsea production system and gas export pipeline.
The gas export pipeline will tie the Barossa gas field, 300 kilometers north of Darwin, into the existing Bayu Undan to Darwin Pipeline.
