The Senex led Atlas project is on track to set new records for the development of a gas field and compressor station.
Atlas is Queensland’s first dedicated domestic gas tenure and is on track to deliver its first gas sales by the end of this year.
That will make it one of the fastest gas production developments from a standing start in the state including stakeholder engagement, landholder negotiations and environmental assessments.
Senex has drilled and completed the first six wells of its 60-well drilling campaign and construction of the Jemena owned compression station is also well advanced.
GasFields Commission staff visited the site recently and the level of focus shown by contractors and engineers working on the project is remarkable.
Drilling is continuing with completed wells to be connected to the compression station from October this year.
Senex plans to connect wells for production in pods of four to eight wells as gathering network connections are completed.
Initial Project Atlas firm gas sales agreements with domestic customers will commence from 1 January 2020.
