Santos GLNG’s $750 million Roma East project has marked a significant milestone, with the natural gas compression facility officially handed over to the operations team. First gas from the Roma East field flowed in February this year and with commissioning now safely completed, the plant is fully operational.

The Roma East project involves bringing 480 wells online, including drilling about 430 new wells, connecting existing appraisal wells, and drilling pre-development wells in the surrounding areas. The project also includes about 420 kilometres of water, gas gathering and other pipelines, 120 TJ per day of additional compression, 670 kilometres of power lines, 25 kilometres of fibre optic cables and a new water-handling facility for irrigation.

Santos Vice President CSG Developments, Rob Simpson is pleased with progress on the project.

'The compression facility is now taking gas from the 200 new wells which have been brought online since the start of construction,' Mr Simpson said.

'Production from Roma has been building nicely and is now about 118 TJ. I am particularly pleased that we were able to bring forward the expansion of 3G and 4G telecommunication services at Summer Hills. This has fixed significant black spots in the country north of Wallumbilla and along the Warrego Highway, benefiting local residents.'

Construction on the Roma East project will continue until mid-2020 as the remaining wells are drilled and connected.

When completed, Santos GLNG expects the project will deliver around 50 PJ of additional gas production each year.

Santos has been supplying gas to homes in the region for more than 50 years and, since 2011, Santos and our GLNG partners have invested almost $20 billion in regional Queensland.

GLNG is a joint venture between Santos, Petronas, Total and KOGAS.
