The agreement extensions will allow raw gas from Beach’s western flank of the Cooper Basin and gas from Senex’s Vanessa project to be processed to sales gas quality using the Santos-operated Moomba gas facilities.
The deal is expected to result in the production of up to 18 TJ of sales gas per day or 20 TJ over the three-year term, which is the equivalent of more than 1 per cent of total east coast domestic gas demand as forecast by the ACCC.
Santos Executive Vice President Midstream Infrastructure Naomi James said the extensions proved the importance of the company’s Moomba facilities.
“These processing agreements demonstrate the benefits of the Santos strategy to leverage our existing infrastructure to facilitate more gas supply and more competition in the east coast domestic gas market as well as continuing to build our Queensland production for both domestic customers and our LNG exports from Gladstone,” she said.
The Moomba gas assets are located in the Cooper Basin in South Australia.
