The Bayu-Undan-Darwin LNG integrated LNG Project involves the production of gas from the offshore Bayu-Undan fields in Timor-Leste waters (previously the Joint Petroleum Development Area) and transportation to the Darwin LNG plant by a gas pipeline, for liquefaction and sale as LNG. The Bayu-Undan fields, the Pipeline and the Darwin LNG plant are owned and operated as three separate but integrated joint ventures, with common ultimate ownership. ConocoPhillips Pipeline Australia Pty Ltd is the operator of both the Pipeline and the Darwin LNG plant and ConocoPhillips (03-12) Pty Ltd is the operator of the upstream Bayu-Undan fields (collectively the Operators). COPA, as a service to the Operators, acts on behalf of all of the joint venture participants (Eni Australia, Santos, Inpex, JERA, and Tokyo Gas) in navigating the federal government and federal policy process. These activities include meeting with Ministers and their staff to provide project updates and discussions on current and proposed national legislation covering the project’s activities.
