Beach Briefs Interruption at Tantanna Pipeline

Beach has been informed by Santos that the pipeline between the Tantanna facility and the Gidgealpa facility has been interrupted due to integrity concerns and is currently being assessed.

The pipeline operated by Beach that feeds the Tantanna facility and transports all the crude oil from the PEL 92 Western Flank oil fields (Beach 75% and Operator, Cooper Energy 25%), remains fully operational. The current capacity of the Beach operated pipeline is approximately 6,000 barrels of oil per day (4,500 barrels of oil per day net to Beach).

Beach is considering all its options at this stage and has started to mobilize trucks to transport the oil from Tantanna to Moomba in the interim. Success to date at Parsons-3, Parsons-4 and Butlers-2 in PEL 92, underpins the Western Flank drilling campaign that is targeting a net increase in reserves to Beach of 6 million barrels of oil.
