CISCO, Texas -- The dive support vessel TSMarine Rem Etive has completed hook-up activities for the pipeline and control systems for the Longtom gas field. The system has also been tested, according to operator Nexus Energy.

Gas from the field will be transported via a newly built pipeline to the end of the Patricia-Baleen pipeline, approximately 7.3 mi (11.7 km) away. The raw gas will then continue along to shore where it will be processed at Santos’s Orbost onshore gas plant.

Production is expected to start in the coming week following coordination with the gas plant.

The Longtom gas project has proved and probable reserves of approximately 350 bcf of gas and 4 MMbbl of condensate. The daily production is estimated at a volume of approximately 11,000 - 12,000 boe/d.
