Montara Project Update
27 February 2023 – Singapore: Jadestone Energy plc (“Jadestone” or the “Company”), an independent oil and gas production company focused on the Asia-Pacific region, is pleased to provide an update on the Montara Project offshore Australia.
Following good progress on the Montara Venture FPSO tank repairs and independent assessment of the Company’s operational practices, the General Direction issued by NOPSEMA was closed earlier this month.
This has allowed a focus on the scheduled topsides maintenance workstreams, although this activity has been impacted by recent severe weather conditions offshore northern Australia. While planned progress has generally been good, several days have been lost to weather-related delays and production restart, which was previously expected by the end of February, has been impacted accordingly.
A further announcement will be made when production resumes.
