ADELAIDE, Australia -- The Reindeer Project Joint Venture has decided to defer the development of the Reindeer offshore gas development and the onshore processing facilities to be located at Devil Creek in Western Australia.

The decision was made due to adverse changes in the global economic outlook that have impacted the proposed foundation gas customer.

Deferral of the Reindeer project will require the suspension or termination of certain engineering and construction contracts. Work will continue on regulatory approvals to ensure a timely re-start of the project once gas sales agreements that support the development have been agreed, the companies say.
