Our early Oil and Gas experiences

SVT's first experiences in the oil and gas industry were in the early years of the development of Australia’s North West Shelf Venture (NWSV) - a Shell, BP, Chevron, BHP Billiton, Japan Australia LNG and Woodside joint venture.

The A$25 billion development, underpinned by some 33 Tcf of gas reserves, is still the largest resource development project in Australia.

Involvement with the NWSV and with Esso (now Exxon) in the Bass Strait over two decades, involved literally hundreds of engagements to support the production of Liquid Natural Gas, domestic gas and condensate, across a range of facilities including:

  • North Rankin — one of the largest capacity gas production platforms in the world
  • Cossack Pioneer — a floating crude oil production, storage/offloading facility featuring flexible flowlines to subsea production wells
  • Goodwyn — the single largest offshore oil/gas investment ever made in Australia designed for up to 30 production wells, including five re-injection wells
  • Karratha Gas Plant — one of the world's largest onshore gas processing facilities, featuring five LNG production trains with a capacity of 16.3 million tonnes a year
