SENEX Energy Ltd and GLNG have agreed a short-term re-direction of around one petajouls (PJ) of natural gas from Roma North to the domestic market.
The company said the temporary re-direction follows GLNG’s currently lower LNG offtake requirements and material production outperformance at Roma North.
Senex said it will reduce natural gas supply to GLNG over the period June to August 2020 at GLNG’s request.
Senex and GLNG have agreed to re-direct these volumes to the Wallumbilla natural gas supply hub.
The company will market this natural gas, together with higher than expected production from Atlas, to east coast gas customers as a part of its supply portfolio.
Senex also reported that its Natural gas production continues to outperform at both Roma North and Atlas in the Surat Basin, with production now exceeding 34 TJ/day.
Given continued production and reservoir outperformance, Senex will further reduce the number of wells to be drilled at Atlas to 45 wells from 50 wells (previously reduced from 60 wells).
Additional wells to maintain plateau production are to be drilled in the next campaign.
Senex said it expects to complete the current drilling campaign in the coming weeks, with final wells to be brought into production during June 2020.
Atlas water infrastructure is also on schedule to commence commissioning and water intake in June, with completion of all works expected in early FY21.
