The work involves establishment of a shore plant to process gas from Apache’s Reindeer gas field off Western Australia. Devil Creek is 65 km southwest of Karratha in the Pilbara region.
Clough will provide engineering, procurement, and construction for onshore facilities that will include gas processing trains, compressors, and accommodation facilities.
The plant will treat and dehydrate the gas, stabilize condensate content, provide storage and road load-out facilities for the liquids as well as gas compression and metering. The site will be connected by a short pipeline to the main natural gas trunkline from Dampier to Bunbury.
Apache said Devil Creek will built for a capacity of 300 terajoules/day of gas. Phase 1 of the project will source gas from Reindeer at about 110 terajoules/day. The gas will be used for domestic supply in Western Australia.
Phase 2 expansion will come with the sanction of the Julimar field, which is still being appraised but which has a substantial gas reserve that will take the plant up to its planned capacity.
Liquids production is expected to be 500 b/d. Phase 1 will be on stream in early 2010 and Phase 2 probably in 2011.
