New project a gas for town

Pilbara News - - News - Tay­lar Amonini

A new gas ex­plo­ration project off the Pil­bara coast is gen­er­at­ing ex­cite­ment for Port Hed­land.

Port Hed­land’s Mayor Camilo Blanco and chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer David Pentz re­cently met Quad­rant En­ergy’s di­rec­tor of gov­ern­ment and pub­lic af­fairs David Parker, and drilling man­ager Ja­son Young to dis­cuss the project in the Bed­out Basin about 60km from Port Hed­land.

“It’s great to see the re­sources in­dus­try con­tin­u­ing to grow in our re­gion, es­pe­cially with these new dis­cov­er­ies in oil and gas,” Mr Blanco said.

“The town is look­ing for­ward to re­ceiv­ing fur­ther up­dates on the ex­plo­ration pro­gram.”

Ex­plo­ration ac­tiv­i­ties are be­ing run by Quad­rant En­ergy un­der a joint ven­ture with Carnar­von Pe­tro­leum.

Quad­rant En­ergy sup­plies more than 40 per cent of WA’s do­mes­tic gas from pro­duc­ing fa­cil­i­ties across the Pil­bara at Varanus Is­land, Devil Creek and Mace­don and is an ac­tive ex­plorer in off­shore ar­eas in north­ern WA.

Quad­rant En­ergy was the most ac­tive off­shore ex­plo­ration com­pany in Aus­tralia in 2016 with a suc­cess­ful seven-well ex­plo­ration drilling pro­gram off the North West coast.
