Barossa Export Pipeline
|This article is part of the Global Fossil Infrastructure Tracker, a project of Global Energy Monitor.|
The Barossa Export Pipeline is a proposed natural gas pipeline in Australia.
The pipeline would run from the Barossa field to a connection point with the existing Bayu-Undan to Darwin Pipeline, which connects to the Darwin LNG Terminal in Darwin, Northern Territory, Australia. The pipeline's exact route appears on page 2 of ConocoPhillips' January 2019 fact sheet on the project.
- Owner: ConocoPhillips Australia 37.5%, SK E&S Australia 37.5%, Santos Offshore Ltd 25%
- Length: 260 kilometers
- Status: Proposed
- Start year: 2025
In March 2018, the pipeline was included in the Barossa Offshore Project Proposal (OPP) accepted by the National Offshore Petroleum Safety and Environmental Management Authority (NOPSEMA). It will provide a new source of gas to the Darwin LNG Terminal once the Bayu-Undan offshore gas field is exhausted.
In March 2021, Santos Ltd announced a final investment decision (FID) on the Barossa gas project that includes the pipeline. The full project cost was estimated at AU$3.6 billion, with plans to commence gas production during the first half of 2025.
