Exploration & Production in Australia

We have a 30% interest in the Ichthys LNG project that will develop a gas and condensate field located in 260 meters of water in the Browse Basin off northwestern Australia. The field is connected to the coastal LNG plant in Darwin via a subsea pipeline stretching nearly 900 kilometers.

We are a 27.5% partner in the Gladstone LNG project to develop several coal seam gas deposits in the state of Queensland. A 420-kilometer onshore pipeline will run from the fields to the LNG plant on Curtis Island.

We are operators of the WA-492 and WA-493 licenses (100%) in the Carnarvon Basin.

We also hold interests in three shale gas exploration licenses in the South Georgina Basin.

Gas and Power in Australia

In 2011, we signed a 15-year LNG sale and purchase agreement for 0.9 million metric tons a year from the Ichthys LNG project, in which we are a 30% partner.

We have set up an affiliate to develop a gas marketing business in the country.
