Odin JV fast-tracks supply

The joint venture (JV) for the Odin gas field has devised a two-stage plan to bring gas from the project to the east coast by mid 2023.

The PRL 211 JV – operated by 50 per cent JV stake holder Vintage Energy – has announced that it will pursue two strategies enabling both short and long-term opportunities to supply the east coast with gas from Odin.

Concept work for the first stage was recently completed and the JV has confirmed that it will temporarily utilise rented equipment and the installation of a 1.4 km Fiberspar connection.

This will connect the well site to the midline-riser of the pipeline currently being installed to connect the Vali and Moomba gas fields.

The long-term connection stage of the project requires a 6.3 km Fiberspar pipeline from the mid-line riser to the Vali facilities.

It will see the Odin gas stream dewatered and metered at Vali before it is transported to Beckler.

Managing director for Vintage, Neil Gibbins said that the benefit of the reconfiguring of the project is twofold.

“We have set ourselves to start supplying gas from Odin as rapidly as possible whilst implementing the best long term connection option for the field,” Gibbins said.

Managing director of Metgasco – which owns 25 per cent, with Bridgeport holding the remaining 25 per cent – said that the JV had chosen the optimal operations for economic and operations production from Odin.

“The Vali field project activities are progressing to plan and Metgasco looks forward to the safe and successful completion of the project and the delivery of first gas,” he said.
