Cooper Energy (ASX:COE) has provided report on the progress of commissioning activities at the Orbost Gas Processing Plant.
The production rate since reopening from May shutdown has averaged 34/TJ day. Peak daily rate was 55 TJ as compared to target of 68 TJ.
APA Group, the owner and the operator of Orbost Gas Processing Plant advised of the re-occurrence of fouling due to lengthy foaming in the second absorber which shall require a second shutdown for the clean-up of the absorber vessel. This shutdown would start on the weekend of 20 – 21 June and need around 6 days to finalise.
The Sole gas field reservoir and production wells have performed well as expected.
