Shell Australia has made a significant gas and condensate discovery in the Browse Basin off the North West Coast of Western Australia. 

Drilling of the Bratwurst -1 exploration well, within title AC/P64, 100 percent owned and operated by Shell, was concluded earlier this month after a 78-day campaign.

This campaign was completed in just over 18 months from bidding and 12 months from award of the AC/P64 title, Shell said in its statement.

This discovery is located 160 kilometers northeast of the Shell-operated Prelude FLNG facility and presents an opportunity for a future tie-back to Prelude.

It supports Shell’s growth plans for more and cleaner energy, with LNG being the predominant focus for Shell in Australia.

“Gas is a core component of our strategy to provide more and cleaner energy solutions,” said Zoe Yujnovich, executive vice president, Shell Australia. “Today’s announcement shows how, through exploration, we are building a strong pipeline of discoveries to support our assets in Western Australia.”
