The Pyrenees oil fields offshore of Western Australia have been producing oil for more than a decade.

Pyrenees at a glance

The Pyrenees operation is made up of six offshore oil fields operated by our Petroleum Unit and co-developed with Apache Energy Limited. It produces crude oil from six reservoirs via a single stand-alone Floating Production Storage and Offloading facility. The Facility is split between production permit WA-42-L - where we share working interests (71.4%) with Santos (28.6%) - and the adjacent permit WA-43-L - with working interests of 40% to BHP, 31.5% to Santos and 28.5% to Inpex.
2010 The first oil production from Pyrenees was in 2010.
13The full project involves 13 subsea wells.
25The project has an estimated production life of 25 years.

We operate the Pyrenees Facility located offshore approximately 45 km northwest of Exmouth in Western Australia.


Oil and gas extracted from petroleum is refined into different types of energy fuels and materials used in everyday products.
