Blacktip Development Project - Onshore Gas Plant
ENI - Wadeye NT
Project Execution Period
December 2007 - September 2009
The Blacktip gas/condensate field is located in the Bonaparte Gulf, 315km from Darwin.
The project comprises a full well stream transfer from an unmanned wellhead platform via a 107km submarine pipeline, to an Onshore Gas Plant in the remote location of Yelcherr near Wadeye. The gas is treated for the removal of condensate and water and then exported via an onshore pipeline. The condensate is stabilised and stored for periodic transfer via an offshore loading facility to a marine tanker for onward transportation.
Scope of Work
Monadelphous was awarded the contract for the vertical package construction of the Onshore Gas Plant including the supply, fabrication, pre-assembly, erection and pre-commissioning of the structural, mechanical, piping, electrical and instrumentation works
The project strategy requires the remote assembly of modular plant and sea transport to the site for final installation and hook up. Modules will be pre-assembled in Darwin and then landed by barge at Yelcherr Beach for transportation via heavy lift trailers to site.
