PERTH (miningweekly.com) – The National Offshore Petroleum Safety and Environmental Management Authority (Nopsema) has called for public comment on oil and gas major Santos’ Dorado development.

Dorado is an integrated oil and gas project which is planned to be developed in two phases. Phase 1 development involves the production of oil and condensate through a well head platform and floating production, storage and offloading facility (FPSO). Phase 1 has an estimated gross capital cost of approximately $2-billion, assuming a purchased FPSO.

The project is located some 143 km north of Port Hedland, and could start as early as 2025 with an intended life of 20 years if all required approvals are secured.

Nopsema has determined that the project proposal meets the regulatory requirements for it to be published for public comment, however, the regulatory body has not yet considered the acceptability of the project and associated environmental impacts. 

Once Santos has considered and addressed issues raised through public comment in their proposal, Nopsema can begin its assessment of the proposal’s acceptability against the requirements of the Environment Regulations. 

If the proposal meets all of the regulatory requirements and is accepted by Nopsema, further regulatory approvals from Nopsema will be required, including environment plans, safety cases, and well operations management plans, before any activities can commence.

Nopsema has called on interested stakeholders to provide comment by October 29.
