Inspection, Rectification Works to Start at Patricia-Baleen Gas Processing

Nexus disclosed Tuesday that a vessel with the capability to inspect and potentially rectify electrical faults is scheduled to arrive at Santos' Patricia-Baleen gas processing facility on Feb.1, 2013.

Earlier on Jan.14, Nexus revealed that an electrical outage which had taken place at an offshore facility caused operation works at the Longtom field to be suspended. A Santos spokesperson clarified on the same day that the affected facility is the Patricia-Baleen gas processing unit.

The facility, sited in the Gippsland Basin, 15 miles (23 kilometers) offshore the northeastern coast of Victoria, processes gas from Nexus’ offshore Longtom development in the VIC/L23 permit.

Nexus added in its disclosure issued Tuesday that the vessel is slated to start inspection and rectification works on arrival, weather permitting.

"All parties are working cooperatively to identify and remedy the fault and return the plant to continuous production as quickly as possible," Nexus said in its disclosure.
