Contracts have been awarded for the Barossa Offshore Project in Perth.
Barossa is an offshore gas and light condensate project that proposes to provide a new source of gas to the existing Darwin LNG (DLNG) 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 300km north of Darwin.
The existing DLNG 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. FEED for the FPSO facility will be conducted as a design competition between two contractor groups.
