Origin spuds two more wells in BassGas MLE project

Origin Energy, as operator of the BassGas Joint Venture, has confirmed that the Yolla-5 production well spudded at 21:30 hours AEDT on 14 March.

The well is being drilled using the West Telesto jack up rig. The Yolla-5 and Yolla-6 wells are being drilled as part of Stage 2 of the BassGas Mid Life Enhancement (MLE) project.

The two-well drilling program follows the successful lift of the export compression and condensate pumping units into place on the Yolla platform.

These activities are designed to extend production from the Yolla field through the BassGas production facility at Lang Lang, Victoria.

Origin Chief Executive Officer Upstream, Paul Zealand said, “the completion of the MLE project will extend the production life of BassGas, to continue to meet the growing demand for gas on Australia’s east coast.”

Prognosed total measured depth of the well is approximately 3,280 metres MDBRT.

The Yolla Platform is located in Bass Strait, approximately 140km off the shore from Kilcunda, Victoria.
