HOUSTON -- Apache Corp. has signed a contract to supply natural gas from the Reindeer field to CITIC Pacific's Sino Iron project in Western Australia.

Apache and its Reindeer joint venture partner Santos have agreed to supply 154 bcf of gas over seven years beginning in the second half of 2011

The gas will be supplied through a new, 65-mi (105-km) offshore pipeline and a new onshore processing facility at Devil Creek, with capacity to process 210 MMcf/d of gas.

The gas sales agreement will not take effect unless Apache and Santos sign contracts for engineering and procurement of the gas plant and pipeline by mid-March 2009 (or a later date if agreed by all parties).
