Subsea Tiebacks

page_header_nws-dev.jpgGreater Enfield Project

Greater Enfield is a demonstration of our phased and sustainable approach to growth.

The US$1.9 billion Greater Enfield Project was approved for development in June 2016. 

Located 60 km off Exmouth in Western Australia within Commonwealth waters the project will develop the Laverda Canyon, Norton over Laverda (WA-59-L) and Cimatti (WA-28-L) oil accumulations. These reserves will be produced via a 31 km subsea tie-back to the Ngujima-Yin floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) facility, located over the Vincent oil field. 

The project is targeting development of gross (100%) 2P reserves of 69 MMboe (net Woodside share of 41 MMboe) from the oil accumulations. Woodside reserves increased by 41 MMboe in conjunction with the approval of the project for development. 

Key to monetising this resource was our close collaboration with contractors, our adoption of the latest technologies, a phased development approach and the use of existing FPSO infrastructure. 

The Greater Enfield drilling campaign commenced in Q1 2018 and is expected to take two years to complete. The subsea installation will commence in Q1 2018, starting with pipelay activities.

Woodside is targeting first oil mid-2019.
