Exploration and production activities in the country are concentrated offshore northern Australia. We have a 100% share in production licence WA-33-L, which contains the Blacktip gas field. With regard to the appraisal and development stages, we hold a 100% and 72.2% share respectively in the NT/RL8 and NT/RL7 areas, which contain the Blackwood and Evans Shoal gas fields, respectively.
The Blacktip gas field (Block WA-33-L) started-up in 2009 and produced approximately 36 bcf of year in 2019. The project is supported by an unmanned well head platform (WHP), which exports gas via a 108-kilometer long pipeline to an onshore treatment plant, Yelcherr Gas Plant (YGP) with a capacity of 42 bcf of year. Natural gas extracted from this field is sold under a 25-year contract to supply local Australian company, Power & Water Utility Co. Elsewhere in the country, we have a non-operating share in the Darwin LNG plant, which is connected to the gas and condensate field in Bayu-Undan, located in Timor Leste waters.
