ADELAIDE, South Australia – More gas will be coming ashore from Western Australia when Santos and Apache complete the recently released Halyard and Spar field development plans. Santos says the fields will supply 10% of Western Australia’s gas supply starting in 2012.

The two companies will complete and tie back the Halyard well in WA-13-L and subject to the outcome of the Spar 2 appraisal well in WA-4-R will move to complete and tieback Spar as part of this development. Halyard is expected to be on line in mid 2011 and Spar to follow in late 2012.

“Halyard and Spar are perfectly positioned to be developed in the near term by tying the gas fields back to the existing gas hub at Varanus Island. Santos is pleased to build on its important relationship with Apache in Western Australia, and is confident Halyard and Spar will make a significant contribution to the state’s domestic gas supply,” says John Anderson, Santos VP for Western Australia and Northern Territories.
