T66 Zeus Facility Upgrade

Demand for operational growth has driven the exploration of new oil and gas fields in the Cooper Basin, resulting in the expansion of existing crude oil drilling and the upgrade of existing processing facilities. A recent drilling campaign at the Santos’ Zeus drilling site has resulted in the need to upgrade the existing on-site facility to achieve greater production capacity.

Our involvement

Aquenta was engaged to provide a project cost estimate on two alternative upgrade options at the Zeus facility. One involved the upgrade and winterisation of the existing pipeline and processing facility. The other involved the construction of a new local facility at the Zeus drilling site.


Cost estimating.

The outcome

Aquenta successfully delivered two detailed cost estimate packages in line with the client’s requirements. The estimates included a detailed review of all scope documentation, accurate sourcing and cost data, and a fully referenced detailed cost estimate for each of the options.
