Reindeer Field FEED starts

Posted: 14 August 2007

Santos today reported the commencement of Front End Engineering and Design (FEED) studies for the Reindeer gas field in the Carnarvon Basin, offshore Western Australia.

"The booming minerals industry in Western Australia has given us the confidence to move forward with FEED studies for this project," said John Ellice-Flint, Santos’ Managing Director

"It is also evident that recent higher gas prices will help to facilitate significant investments in long term gas supply for Western Australia such as that proposed for the Reindeer project."

The Reindeer field is located in permit WA-209-P in which Santos has a 45 per cent working interest in joint venture with Apache Energy (55 per cent and operator). The field was discovered in 1997 and has a gross recoverable resource range of 410 to 640 Petajoules.

The FEED studies will focus on the preferred development option, which consists of an unmanned offshore platform with a pipeline to a new gas processing facility to be located on the mainland.

The proposed production capacity is approximately 110 Terajoules per day of sales gas with first gas targeted for mid 2010.

The new onshore processing facility will increase the security of gas supply into the domestic Western Australian market by adding incremental processing capacity away from the existing plants at Varanus Island and the North West Shelf.
