Production has begun from the Woodside-operated Enfield oil project off North West Cape, Western Australia.

The hook-up, testing and commissioning of the floating production storage and offloading facility, Nganhurra has been completed and over the coming weeks production is expected to increase steadily.

Nganhurra is about 50 kilometres north-west of Exmouth. It has a maximum production rate of about 100,000 barrels per day and a storage capacity of about 900,000 barrels of oil. Water depth at the location is 390 metres.

Enfield is in production licence WA-28-L and has estimated reserves of about 127 million barrels of oil. It was discovered by Woodside in 1999.

Joint venture participants are Woodside Energy Ltd. (60% and operator) and Mitsui E&P Australia Limited (40%).
