Bonaparte FLNG gets environmental green light

GDF SUEZ Bonaparte and venture partner Santos Offshore have received environmental approval to develop the Bonaparte Floating LNG Project, subject to 15 conditions. 

The Bonaparte floating facility – the second floating LNG (FLNG) facility in Australia to be approved – will be located approximately 250 km west of Darwin and will produce and export LNG.

Santos and GDF SUEZ Bonaparte entered into a joint venture in 2009 to develop the project in the Bonaparte Basin, taking gas from the Petrel, Tern and Frigate fields. Santos has a 40 per cent stake in the project while operator GDF SUEZ Bonaparte has a 60 per cent share.
