Offshore staff

SYDNEY, Australia – Production has started from the Otway Gas Project’s Geographe field in the Bass Strait.

Origin Energy (ASX:ORG), speaking for the VIC/L23 Joint Venture said the Geographe gas field consists of development wells, subsea facilities connecting to the existing Otway Gas Project subsea pipeline, and an onshore plant.

Geographe is in Victorian coastal waters 55 km (34 mi) south of Port Campbell and 15 km (9 mi) north of the Thylacine offshore platform. The Otway project consists of Geographe and Thylacine fields.

"The development of Geographe enables gas production to Otway Gas Plant to be maintained, thereby ensuring the project continues to make a major contribution to Victoria's energy security,” said Paul Zealand, CEO of Upstream for Origin. “Production from Otway Gas Plant is equivalent to 22% of Victoria's domestic gas demand.”
