Shell’s ‘next phase’ in Australia includes drilling 145 new gas wells

By Nick Toscano and Mike Foley

Energy giant Shell has set out plans to drill 145 new gas wells in Queensland over the next three years to supply local consumers and liquefied-gas export markets.

Shell, Tokyo Gas and China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC) said their QGC joint venture would develop the wells in Queensland’s Western Downs, which will feed existing gas-processing plants and bring an extra 210 petajoules of gas to market in the next 15 years.

As Shell prepares to embark on new plans to drill QGC’s 145 new wells in the area, it said talks were already underway with landholders to agree to access deals and the location of the wells to minimise impact on farming activities.
