Armour Energy has announced that commercial gas sales from its Kincora Project in Queensland commenced last week.

Armour recently recommissioned the dry gas circuit of the Kincora Gas Plant, and with the Kincora to Wallumbilla pipeline and a new end-of-line facility at Wallumbilla operational, Kincora gas is now deliverable to the market.

Gas sales of 5 TJ/d are set to begin this week, with the gas being sold under Armour’s gas sales agreement with Australia Pacific LNG.

“We are delighted to have commenced first gas sales from the Kincora Project,” said Armour CEO Roger Cressey.

“This is a major milestone for Armour and a further step in our evolution towards becoming a significant oil and gas producer in the Roma region.”

Gas is currently being produced from the Newstead gas storage facility, processed and compressed at Kincora, then delivered to market through the downstream pipeline facilities.

The next stage of Phase 1 of the Kincora restart project will involve ramp-up of gas production from existing wells which are currently shut-in.

Phase 2 of the restart project will involve drilling of new wells plus workovers and stimulations of existing wells.
