Woodside's Enfield Produces First Oil
Production has begun from the Woodside-operated Enfield oil project off North West Cape, Western Australia.
The hook-up, testing, and commissioning of the floating production storage and offloading facility, Nganhurra, has been completed and over the coming weeks production is expected to increase steadily.
Nganhurra is about 50 kilometers northwest of Exmouth. It has a maximum production rate of about 100,000 barrels per day and a storage capacity of about 900,000 barrels of oil. Water depth at the location is 390 meters.
Enfield, discovered by Woodside in 1999, is in production license WA-28-L and has estimated reserves of about 127 million barrels of oil. Joint venture participants are Woodside Energy Ltd. (60% and operator) and Mitsui E&P Australia Limited (40%).
