Green light for Van Gogh

The National Offshore Petroleum Safety and Environmental Management Authority (NOPSEMA) has accepted Santos’ plan to drill three new dual lateral wells offshore northwest Australia and tie the wells back to the Ningaloo Vision production facility.

The installation will take place entirely within production licence WA-35-L and will follow Santos’ drilling of two production wells in 2018 under the same Environment Plan (EP).

Production operations are covered under the NOPSEMA accepted Ningaloo Vision Operations EP.

The project’s drilling sites are located off Australia’s North West Cape.
