Third well for Blacktip

18 Nov 2019 4:24 PM | Sonia Harvey (Administrator)

The offshore regulator has approved Eni’s plans to drill a third a development well at its Blacktip field offshore Western Australia in permit WA-33-L in the Bonaparte Basin, some 300 kilometres west-south-west of Darwin. 

The National Offshore Petroleum Safety and Environmental Management Authority gave the Italian oiler the go-ahead, it said last week.  

Blacktip started operation a decade ago and produces gas and condensate from two wells. Eni has a 100% interest in the project.  

The field was discovered in 2001 and is in water depths of around 50m.  

The main field reservoir of Blacktip is a four-way dip closure made of stacked gas-bearing sandstones. 

The sandstones are of the Lower Triassic Mt Goodwin formation and Permian - Upper Carboniferous Keyling and Treachery formations. Eni says recoverable reserves are around 150 million barrels of oil equivalent. 

The offshore facilities consist of a well-head platform, two producing wells, flowlines and a subsea gas export pipeline bringing gas, condensate and produced water to the Yelcherr Gas Plant near Wadeye in the Northern Territory.  

The gas is used for power production in the Top End.
