The Operator is monitoring well performance to achieve optimal co-mingling with production from the existing Yolla-4 well. The early unstablised production rate from the BassGas facilities has now increased to approximately 57 TJ/day following the addition of the Yolla-6 well.

AWE Managing Director, Bruce Clement, said that the development drilling phase of the BassGas Mid Life Enhancement project was nearing completion.

"With Yolla-6 now on production, and well performance in-line with data acquired while drilling the well, we are looking forward to additional production from the Yolla-5 well, due to come online in early August," he said

The BassGas project consists of the Yolla offshore well head platform connected by pipeline to the gas processing facility at Lang Lang, Victoria. The Yolla platform is located in Bass Strait, approximately 140km offshore from Kilcunda, Victoria.
