The Red Gully Gas and Condensate Processing Facility is capable of processing 10 million cubic feet of gas and associated condensate from the Red Gully-1 and Gingin West-1.
Gas produced will be sold to Alcoa under the existing gas sales agreement that was reached in October last year while condensate will be sold to the BP Refinery at Kwinana, Western Australia.
Gingin West-1 flowed 7.5 million cubic feet (MMcf) of gas and 375 barrels of condensate per day during testing while Red Gully-1 flowed 12MMcf of gas and 832 barrels of condensate.
