Woodside has confirmed it has made a positive final investment decision (FID) for the Pyxis Hub project, located in Permit Area WA-34-L offshore Western Australia.
According to the company’s quarterly update, the final investment decision for the Pyxis Hub project was taken in August 2019.
Pyxis Hub Project comprises the subsea tieback of the Pyxis, Pluto North and Xena 2 infill wells.
Key contracts have been awarded to support design and installation of subsea equipment and infrastructure for the project, the company noted.
Woodside CEO Peter Coleman said: “We have taken a final investment decision for the Pyxis Hub Project, comprising the subsea tieback of the Pyxis, Pluto North and Xena 2 infill wells, with key contracts awarded to support design and installation of subsea equipment infrastructure. Development of the Pyxis Hub will support the future operation of Pluto LNG, the Pluto-NWS Interconnector and the broader Burrup Hub vision.”
Two new and two in-fill production wells are proposed, as well as the installation of subsea structures, to complement production from existing wells at the Pluto and Xena fields.
The proposed activities comprise the drilling of two new and two in-fill wells, which will be tied-in to existing subsea infrastructure via subsea Xmas trees, flexible flowlines, production manifolds and service umbilicals.
The proposed activities are planned to start in Q1 2020, starting with the Pyxis wells and related subsea installation.
