Woodside has submitted a revision of the North West Shelf (NWS) Project’s Angel Platform Operations Environment Plan.
The Environment Plan is being resubmitted to account for the production from a single well tieback located in the Lambert Deep reservoir.
There are a further three production wells tied back to the Angel facility via rigid flowlines that are no longer producing from the Angel reservoir due to high water content and have been shut-in.
The Environment Plan also includes a number of exploration wells not linked to the production systems.
The Environment Plan will cover the Angel Facility, including the Lamber Deep Tieback, operated by Woodside on behalf of the North West Shelf (NWS) Project, as well as a number of exploration wells not linked to the production systems.
The Angel facility is located in Commonwealth waters within licence areas WA-3L, WA-14PL and WA-16L. The Angel platform is situated approximately 125 km north-west of Karratha in Western Australia and has been operating since 2008.
Angel is an offshore not normally staffed (NNs) production platform that will produce from the Lambert Deep reservoir.
Gas and condensate from this reservoir is processed on the Angel platform then transported via an export pipeline to the North Rankin Complex, and then onshore to the Karratha Gas Plant (KGP) for processing.
The participants include Woodside Energy Ltd, BHP Petroleum (NWS) Pty Ltd, BP Developments Australia Pty Ltd, Chevron Australia Pty Ltd, Japan Australia LNG (MIMI) Pty Ltd and Shell Australia Pty Ltd.
