Amour Energy said it has been successful in the recent Queensland Government petroleum acreage release tender and has been notified by the Queensland Department of Natural Resources and Mines that it is the preferred tenderer for tender area on the Roma Shelf, in the Surat basin.

Existing production wells and compression facilities on PL71 are in the process of being tested and prepared for the restart of operations, planned to occur in December 2017.  

The tender area is adjacent to Armour’s PL71 and associated infrastructure means that resources identified on the tender area can be readily connected to Armour’s Kincora Gas Plant and thus to market. 

Amour said gas produced in this region has historically provided an average liquefied petroleum gas yield of approximately 2066 tonnes and an average condensate yield of approximately 9942 barrels.

Commenting on this announcement, CEO Roger Cressey said, “The block adds to our Kincora Gas project assets and is a natural extension to our petroleum lease PL71 where we are about to restart production.  

“We recently restarted production from our Kincora Gas project and we are confident that this new acreage will provide further resources for long-term gas production.”

The next stage of the Kincora Gas project restart involves ramp‐up of gas production from existing wells which are currently shut‐in.  This gas will be treated by the wet gas circuit at the Kincora Gas Plant.  

Restart work on the wet gas circuit is underway, Armour said and is expected to be completed by December 2017.  Once the commissioning of the wet gas circuit at Kincora and the balance of field infrastructure is completed, the company plans to increase gas production to around 9 TJ/day.
