Located approximately 200 kilometres off the northern coastline of Western Australia, this is an emerging gas province with the Ichthys field under development and several nearby discoveries being actively appraised for LNG potential.
The Burnside gas discovery was made in 2009 by Beach and its joint-venture partners. A gross gas column is evident over a 65 metre thick sand and pressure data acquired in the reservoir section supports the potential for the gas column to be stratigraphically trapped over a large area. Ongoing studies are directed toward assessing the significance of this gas discovery.
