The Barossa joint venture, consisting of ConocoPhillips Australia Exploration Pty Ltd (ConocoPhillips), SK E&S Australia Pty Ltd and Santos Offshore Pty Ltd, have approved entering the FrontEnd
Engineering Design (FEED) phase on the Barossa Offshore Project. Barossa is an offshore gas and light condensate project that proposes to provide a new source of gas to the existing Darwin LNG facility, subject to suitable commercial arrangements being put in place. The offshore development concept includes a Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) facility, subsea production system, and gas export pipeline, located in Commonwealth waters about 300 kilometres north of Darwin. The existing Darwin LNG infrastructure owners are assessing several options to backfill the facility
from 2023 when the current offshore gas supply from Bayu-Undan is expected to be exhausted.
Limited procurement activity is expected during FEED with most expected to occur post-FID.
This project is listed on the ICN Gateway
