Strike Energy has reported progress in its West Erregulla development.

The EP469 Joint Venture, operated by Strike, received a ministerial statement under the Environmental Protection Act 1986 for upstream infrastructure.

AGI Operations, an Australian Gas Infrastructure Group subsidiary, also received a ministerial statement for the midstream infrastructure necessary for the West Erregulla processing plant and pipeline.

The approval de-risks the West Erregulla development project, enabling the EP469 Joint Venture and AGIG to move closer to a final investment decision.
