LONDON, May 18 -- The Ocean Legend offshore production facility has brought the $110 million (Aus.) two-field Legendre development off Australia to first oil, operator Woodside Energy Ltd. reported Friday.
Production from Legendre North and Legendre South fields, 35 km southeast of the Wanaea-Cossack developments in production license WA-20-L, will be ratcheted up to a plateau of 50,000 b/d as three more development wells are completed.
Legendre's field life is forecast at between 3-8 years (OGJ Online, Jan. 15, 2001).
The Legendre Venture is the third oil development by Woodside in Australian waters. It follows the Laminaria/Corallina development off northern Australia in the Timor Sea, and the North West Shelf Venture's Wanaea-Cossack development.
The participants and equity interests in license WA-20-L are Woodside (45.94%), Apache Energy Ltd. (31.5%) and Santos Ltd. (22.56%).
