Apache' s Halyard field produces first gas and condensate
Apache Corporation said that a subsidiary' s Halyard-1 discovery well has commenced producing gas and condensate for delivery into the Western Australian domestic market.
Production from the well, drilled in 2008 in production license WA-13-L, will be transported to market via an existing pipeline to the East Spar field facilities and from there to Apache' s Varanus Island processing and transportation hub.
Development of the Spar field, located in adjacent License WA-4-R, is expected to follow in late 2012 as additional capacity becomes available at Varanus Island. The fields are both controlled from Apache' s John Brookes platform. Apache' s subsidiary owns a 55-percent interest in both WA-13-L and WA-4-R. Santos owns the remaining interests.
