Energy producer and explorer Whitebark Energy Ltd (WBE) (Whitebark) notes the announcement by the Federal Minister for the Environment and Energy, the Hon Josh Frydenberg MP, regarding the appointment of ACIL Allen, in conjunction with GHD, to undertake a pre-feasibility study (PFS) on the economic potential of a West-East Gas Pipeline.

The PFS is assessing the viability of constructing a natural gas pipeline to provide additional gas supplies and increase competition in the east coast gas market. The Government expects to receive the PFS report in March 2018. Whitebark Energy supports the PFS and the potential for the West-East Gas Pipeline as a catalyst to opening up demand for gas from its 57% owned Warro Project. The Warro Project, located northeast of Perth, has 8-10 trillion cubic feet (Tcf) in place and potentially 1.7 – 3.6 TcF of recoverable gas (Refer ASX announcement 19 November 2015).

Work on the Warro Gas Project has been suspended while the WA Government completes an independent scientific inquiry into hydraulic fracturing. The Company is hopeful that a positive PFS report on the West-East Gas Pipeline and an expeditious completion of the hydraulic fracturing inquiry, will increase the economic viability of the Warro tight gas project.

Commenting on the PFS announcement, Whitebark Energy’s Managing Director, David Messina, said “We fully support the Federal Government’s investigations into the viability of a West-East Gas Pipeline.

Such nation building infrastructure, coupled with what we hope will be a sensible resolution to the fraccing inquiry, should go a long way to opening up the WA gas fields.

“As Warro is a tight gas development play, it requires long term sales contracts supported by demand. The proposed pipeline opens up the opportunity for new sales channels to be explored, with pricing based on east coast demand.”
