Cooper’s Sole schedule affected by bushfires in Australia
Cooper Energy expects further delays in the completion of upgrades on the Orbost gas plant in Victoria, which will process gas from its Sole gas field located offshore Australia, due to bushfires in the East Gippsland area.
The Orbost plant is located in East Gippsland, a region currently subject to bushfires. APA Group is undertaking the onshore project to upgrade the Orbost gas plant to process gas from Sole. APA was expected to conclude the plant upgrade works and begin commissioning and delivery of sales gas within the September 2019 quarter. However, the project has taken longer than expected.
APA estimates the impact of the bushfires, to date, is for a delay of approximately two weeks to the schedule announced in December 2019. Namely, Cooper in December said that the introduction of gas from the Eastern Gas Pipeline (EGP) for the first phase of gas commissioning was planned to start in early January 2020 and the second phase of gas commissioning, which involves gas supply from the Sole gas field, was planned to start in late January.
