Posted by Monica Gameng

Santos has completed the commissioning and start-up of the Scotia CF1 project in Queensland. The company has stated that the project was completed ahead of schedule and under budget.

According to Santos Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Kevin Gallagher, the delivery of the project was outstanding, completed well ahead of schedule and well under budget.

“The project was estimated to cost $493 million, but the team has delivered it for $416 million, 16 per cent under budget.

“Site infrastructure is also running three months ahead of schedule and some of the well completions are a year ahead of time,” Mr Gallagher said.

The Scotia CF1 project involved the expansion of the compression plant and field from 23 to more than 100 wells. The project also included building 85 kilometres of linear infrastructure as well as two 4G communications towers and an irrigation system for water treatment. Construction of the Scotia expansion employed more than 400 people.

Scotia CF1 - located in the Bowen Basin, 340 kilometres northwest of Brisbane - will be supplying approximately 70 terrajoules (TJ) a day at peak production in 2019 which will significantly boost gas supply to the Santos GLNG project as well as benefitting both the east coast domestic gas and export LNG markets.
