  • Type: Oil / Gas
  • Estimated Reserves: 150 million barrels
  • Production Volume:


  • The field is in water depths of some 650 metres
  • Reserves are extracted using subsea wells with flowlines tied back to the Nganhurra FPSO, a facility that can process up to 100,000 barrels of oil per day and with storage capacity of up to one million barrels
  • Gaslifted wells are used to produce the Enfield fluids.
  • Water injection wells are required for the disposal of produced water supplemented by injection of seawater to provide reservoir support for Enfield. Excess gas is reinjected into the reservoir.

Greater Enfield Development Project

  • The project involves the development of the Laverda Canyon, Norton over Laverda, and Cimatti (WA-28-L) oil accumulations, via tie backs to the Nganhurra FPSO
