The Persephone gas field is located 135 km north west of Karratha, Western Australia, in water depth of around 126 metres. The $1.5 US dollar Persephone project, which came on-stream on 30 July, is expected to produce around 50,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.
Persephone is a two well 7km subsea tieback from the Persephone field to the existing North Rankin complex (NRC). The manifold is connected to the NRC platform via a 12” flexible flowline and control umbilical.
Operated by BP’s partner, Woodside, the NRC comprises the North Rankin A and North Rankin B platforms. Connected by two 100 metre bridges, the platforms operate as a single integrated facility. The NRC stands in 125 metres of water and has a daily production capacity of up to 66,000 tonnes of dry gas and 6,000 tonnes of condensate from the North Rankin and Perseus fields.
