Santos (10%), BHP Billiton (90% and operator).

First Production

Production commenced from Minerva in late 2004, with gas sold to Victorian customers. 

About the Development

The field has two subsea production wells, which supply gas through a 10-kilometre subsea pipeline to the onshore Minerva gas processing plant. This gas plant is connected to the SEAGas pipeline providing access to the South Australian and Victorian markets.

Santos' share of 2015 production was 2.0 petajoules of sales gas and 4,800 barrels of condensate.
