The Australian Energy Review - - NEWS -

Newly-formed West­ern Gas has ac­quired the un­de­vel­oped Equus gas project in the North West Shelf of WA from US en­ergy com­pany Hess.

West­ern Gas has ac­quired four per­mits and a re­ten­tion lease, in­clud­ing 11 gas and con­den­sate fields, about 200km north-west of Onslow.

“The Equus Gas Project is de­vel­op­ment-ready with ex­plo­ration and ap­praisal al­ready com­pleted, en­gi­neer­ing ac­tiv­i­ties at an ad­vanced stage and, with a re­source of more than 2 Tcf, enough gas to sup­ply one quar­ter of West­ern Aus­tralian do­mes­tic gas de­mand for more than 20 years,” West­ern Gas ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor An­drew Lei­bovitch said.
