Since the project was given joint venture sanction on October 12, 2004, the Casino gas development has progressed rapidly. As at the end of December, the project was on schedule (being approximately 22% complete) and on budget to achieve first gas production by January 2006.
During late 2004, formal environmental approval of the Casino development was received from the Commonwealth Department of Environment and Heritage. More recently, the project has received approvals for the construction of the shore crossing and the installation of the onshore pipeline, which will link the offshore development to the Iona gas plant.
Other current key activities for the project include:
Participants in VIC/P 44 are Santo Limited as Operator with 50%; Peedamullah Petroleum Pty Ltd (AWE) with 25%; and Mittwell Energy Resources with the remaining 25%.
