Quarterly Production Report December 2015

Australia Pacific LNG commences LNG shipment and delivers cargo to Sinopec; Origin reports strong December quarter production 

Quarterly Production Report (15 pages)

Origin Energy Limited (Origin) today released its Quarterly Production Report for its Integrated Gas business for the quarter to 31 December 2015.

During the period, Origin recorded production of 54.4 PJe, representing a 14 per cent increase on the prior three-month period and a 63 per cent increase on the corresponding period in FY2015. This result was underpinned by higher gas production from Australia Pacific LNG as Train 1 came online and a full quarter of production from the recently completed Yolla 5 and Yolla 6 wells at BassGas.

Revenue for the three months to 31 December was $212.21 million, a 6 per cent reduction on that achieved during the September quarter. An increase in volumes and average price realised by Australia Pacific LNG was more than offset by the decline in sales volumes at Kupe (due to scheduled maintenance) and at Otway and Cooper Basin (due to lower nominations by Origin). When compared to the corresponding period in FY2015, revenue decreased 12 per cent as a result of lower average realised commodity prices.
