Energy Business Review has a report on WA diversifying its gas supply (in the wake of last year's Varanus Island gas explosion) via the construction of the Devil's Creek gas plant - Apache Energy Starts Construction Of Its Devil Creek Gas Plant Near Karratha, Australia.
Apache Energy Limited (Apache Energy) has started construction of its Devil Creek domestic gas plant near Karratha. Australia Energy Minister, Peter Collier helped mark the start of construction of the gas plant during a groundbreaking ceremony. The plant is expected to be commissioned at the end of 2011, initially delivering an additional 10% into Western Australia’s (WA) domestic gas market.
It has been designed to process 220 terajoules per day, or 20% of current supply, to the domestic gas market. In addition, the plant will supply up to 500 barrels of condensate per day. Gas extracted from the Reindeer field would be processed at the plant and supplied into the Dampier to Bunbury natural gas pipeline.
