VIDEO: Coniston Development Project Offshore Australia
The Coniston Development Project is a new subsea oil field development located in the Exmouth Basin offshore North West Australia.
The project involves development of the Coniston and Novara oilfields via a tie-back to subsea infrastructure already in place for the Apache-operated Van Gogh field development. The project will also use the Floating Production, Storage and Offloading vessel (FPSO), associated with Van Gogh, the Ningaloo Vision.
This Apache-operated project, a joint venture between Apache and INPEX, commenced in late 2011 and is due for completion in 2014.
