Surat springing back to life
Jobs expected in the Surat Basin by September as CSG industry slowly starts up again.
Wednesday 15 February 2017  

The strengthening outlook for oil and gas prices is slowly thawing the big freeze in construction work in the Surat basin, with Origin Energy taking the first steps toward expanding gas fields between Roma and Injune.

Back in 2004, Origin got approval for - and built - the Spring Gully CSG project, which feeds gas to Gladstone for export through the Australian Pacific LNG processing plant.

Known as the Spring Gully North-West and North-East Development, Origin has this week submitted detailed plans for increasing its CSG output, by drilling and building 114 new gas wells in adjacent undeveloped petroleum leases which will be piped through the existing Spring Gully CSG gas network in the Surat Basin.

Origin says they plan to start work  no later than September this year - or earlier if they can get approval

“The Project is expected to involve approximately 114 production wells,” Origin said.

“This includes eight wells and associated infrastructure for which some preparatory works have been undertaken to date (e.g. clearing of lease area, access tracks, etc.)

“It also involves the installation, operation and maintenance of gas and water gathering flowlines, as well as the installation, operation and maintenance of supporting infrastructure like access roads, power and communication systems, temporary accommodation camps, laydowns, and stockpiles.”

Origin is yet to put a number on the total construction, and operational workforce required but says they will be accommodated at a nearby mining camp, and drawn from nearby communities.

Approximately 10,250 ML of CSG water is predicted over the life of the project, which will be processed through their existing water treatment facility, before being either used in productive agriculture or reinjected into local aquifers.
