The Barossa Export Pipeline is a proposed natural gas pipeline in Australia.[1]


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.[1]

Project details

  • Owner: ConocoPhillips Australia 37.5%, SK E&S Australia 37.5%, Santos Offshore Ltd 25%[2]
  • Length: 260 kilometers[1]
  • Status: Proposed
  • Start year: 2025[3]


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.[1]

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.[3]
