Geophysical and Geotechnical Survey
EOG Resources Australia WA-488 Pty Ltd is planning to undertake geophysical and geotechnical (G&G) investigations to assess and characterise the seabed in advance of drilling an exploration well (Beehive-1) in Commonwealth marine waters in permit area WA-488-P. The activity is located in the Joseph Bonaparte Gulf, approximately 163 km north-northeast of Wyndham in Western Australia, 85 km east northeast of Port Keats (Wadeye) in the Northern Territory and 289 km southwest of Darwin.
The G&G activity is expected to take up to 6 weeks to complete (subject to weather and vessel/equipment availability and potentially split into separate acquisition windows) within the April to August 2022 time period.
An Environment Plan (EP) for the activity has been prepared in accordance with the Offshore Petroleum and Greenhouse Gas Storage (Environment) Regulations 2009, which are regulated by the National Offshore Petroleum Safety and Environmental Management Authority (NOPSEMA).
The EP can be viewed on the NOPSEMA website and the public are invited to submit comments. For further information go to:
