Unfortunately, Covid19 restrictions prohibited the Warrego whisky being consumed in the traditional Scottish celebratory manner by sharing drinks from a quaich, a double-handled silver communal drinking cup!
The COVID19 restrictions also prevented Warrego group CEO & MD Dennis Donald from attending the most significant event to date in Warrego’s history but he was no less ebullient as he joined by video link from 9000 miles away along with CEO – Australia David Biggs from Melbourne.
“We are very pleased to conclude a long-term GSA with Western Australia’s largest and most experienced gas buyer, Alcoa,” Dennis said.
“The nature and scale of the contract means no further GSAs are required in order for Warrego to commit to bringing the field into production which is testament to the strength of our team in Perth and a tremendous validation of our gas marketing strategy.”
Cathy McKeagney: “Signing this ground-breaking deal with Alcoa sees Warrego transition from Explorer to Producer, something that Warrego has aspired to for many years, and something we are delighted to raise a glass to!”
Warrego now awaits the results of the WE-3 well currently being drilled by the joint venture which, if successful as expected, will pave the way towards a decision to commit to the development of the West Erregulla field.
