The Waitsia gas field is one of the largest gas fields ever discovered onshore in Australia and is 205 miles (330 km) north of Perth, within the Perth Basin.   

The Waitsia Stage 2 Development will unlock the potential of the Waitsia gas field. A new 250-TJ/day gas processing plant is being built that will draw from up to eight production wells. The processed gas will be transported via a small pipeline to the Dampier to Bunbury Natural Gas Pipeline (DBNGP).   

Two of these production wells are completed and up to six more are planned in 2022 prior to production commencing.  

The first contract deals with the provision of logistics and storage services including transport between Perth and the Perth Basin, as well as consolidation/receipt services and storage solutions across ASCO’s Perth and Dongara supply bases.   

The second contract focuses on camp management, including provision of a fully catered and serviced 52-person static accommodation camp, which will be serviced by ASCO’s Camp 1 located in the Perth Basin. Personnel transport services and a well site mini-camp service at the rig site will also be included.
