For the time being, the Barossa offshore gas and light project is in the front-end engineering design (FEED) phase.

Barossa will provide a new source of gas to the existing Darwin LNG facility when the current offshore gas supply from Bayu-Undan is exhausted.

Barossa's offshore concept consists of a floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) facility, SPS and gas export pipeline, located in Commonwealth waters, 300 kilometers north of Darwin, Australia.

In light of the above, Chris Wilson, ConocoPhillips Australia West president commented

This award represents a significant milestone in the Barossa Project. The SPS facilities include critical, long lead time equipment which is required to be ordered prior to a final investment decision in order to meet the project schedule.
