West Erregulla Field Development Program

Closed 7 Sep 2021

Opened 1 Sep 2021


Strike West Pty Ltd propose to extract gas from the West Erregulla gas field by constructing and operating a gathering system to connect its gas field and convey the extracted gas to an upstream separating facility. The proposal will supply gas to a third party operated gas processing facility, subject to separate approvals.  

The proposal is located within the Shires of Three Springs and Mingenew in the Midwest region of Western Australia, approximately 50 kilometres (km) south-east of Dongara and 234 km north of Perth. 

The proposal includes a flowline gathering network system to convey gas from four existing approved wells and two new conventional wells to an upstream facility, remote terminal unit, metering and corrosion inhibitor chemical injection system at each well site, and an upstream facility consisting of a slug catcher, pigging tie-in points, sump tanks and common manifold. The proposal terminates at the gas and liquids transfer point. 

The proposal will result in the clearing of up to 38.53 hectares (ha) of native vegetation within a 93.97 ha Development Envelope. 

The life of the proposal is for 20 years.

Why your views matter

At this initial stage of the EIA process, comment is simply sought on whether or not the EPA should assess a proposal and, if so, what level of assessment is considered appropriate.

What happens next

Following the seven day public comment period and consideration of any comments received, the EPA will decide whether or not this proposal requires environmental impact assessment and, if so, what level of assessment will be applied.

The EPA's decisions on level of assessment are released each Monday on the EPA's website.
