Operations Update – since last CAC
 Production currently 18.5 TJ/d
 No issues with production
Inlet Pressure Reduction project
A small modification to the plant was carried out to ensure that we continue to
meet sales gas quality specifications
Project was commissioned in November. Noise emissions are maintained at
previous level
The only change that the community may notice following completion of the
project will be approximately two water trucks per week travelling to site during
summer months.
The project provided some revenue to the local district during the construction
phase and allows production to continue in to the future.
Offshore campaign
A short offshore campaign will commence on approximately 18th December. This
will comprise of a visual inspection of the Patricia Baleen pipeline and
equipment. Grout bags will be placed at any areas where there has been
erosion.This is a routine activity to monitor the condition of the pipeline.
The Surf Supporter will carry out the work which will be between the Patricia
and Baleen wells through to the shoreline.
Consultation letters have been sent to affected persons.
Offshore campaign
Planning Scheme Amendment
 Planning scheme amendment request to rezone the site to a
Special Use Zone was approved by Minister for Planning
 Note that in the event that the gas plant undergoes any significant
modifications, a new Works Approval Application would be required
from the Environment Protection Authority
 Extensive community consultation is part of the Works Approval
process to ensure appropriate communication with all relevant
