Woodside updates offshore Senegal, Australia developments
Woodside Energy has contracted Shearwater GeoServices to acquire an HD 3D seismic survey over the SNE oil field offshore Senegal.
The program, due to start in June, should lead to improved reservoir definition in support of well positioning and optimization for thePhase 1 development.
Offshore Western Australia, Woodside said the Chevron-operated Wheatstone platform was controlled remotely from Perth for a brief period earlier this year, after being demobilized during the approach of Tropical Cyclone Veronica.
Elsewhere in the region, theGreater Enfield development was recently 89% complete. Nine of the 12 development wells have been drilled and completed and the final production risers should be installed this month.
Commissioning is under way of critical equipment on the FPSONgujima-Yin, and the vessel will soon sail to Western Australian waters, followed by further commissioning and start-up.
Front-end engineering design has started for the offshore Pyxis and Pluto North infill wells, with a final investment decision probable in late 2019.
The Greater Western Flank Phase 3 project entered the concept definition phase in January. The aim is to produce 435 bcf of gas via four subsea wells tied back to existing North West Shelf project infrastructure, with ready for start-up targeted for 2022.
Gas processing agreement negotiations continue for the Browse to North West Shelf project. A geophysical, geotechnical, and environmental survey started along the proposed trunkline route last month.
