Located oshore, approximately 425 km north of Broome in north-
west Australia, the Browse resources, containing the Brecknock,

gas and 390 MMbblofcondensate(C).
The Browse Joint Venture (BJV) selected the Browse to NWS
Project development concept, including two FPSO facilities, and
commenced the concept deﬁnition phase in September 2018.
The project will deliver gas through an approximately 900 km
pipeline to existing NWS infrastructure, producing around 10 Mtpa
of LNG/LPG and 1.4 Mtpa of domestic gas (100% project).
In November 2018, the BJV and NWS Project participants signed
a non-binding, preliminary tolling agreement for the processing of
Browse gas resources through KGP. Four of the ﬁve BJV participants

The preliminary tolling agreement is being converted to a binding,
fully-termed gas processing agreement.
Several contracts were awarded to support the concept deﬁnition
phase, including the engineering design of the FPSO facilities and
the pipeline route survey.
