The Daandine gas field is owned and operated by Arrow Energy and located in Petroleum Lease (PL) 230, 40 km west of Dalby in the Surat Basin. Its location relative to other Arrow Energy operations (Kogan North and Tipton West) is shown in Figure 8. Target coals at Daandine are the Walloon Coal Measures. Commercial gas production commenced in September 2006 with produced gas supplied to the 30 megawatt (MW) Daandine Power Station (contracted for 2.2 petajoule per year (PJ/year)) and the 450 MW Braemar 2 Power Station. A 12 year supply of a combined 11.5 PJ/year to the Braemar 2 Power Station has been contracted from the Daandine and Stratheden (described in Section 1.2.3) gas fields (Arrow Energy, 2014). As of 31 December 2013 the 2P reserves at Daandine were 293 PJ (DNRM, 2014d). Under the proposed Surat Gas Project (one of five components of the Arrow LNG project), the Daandine gas field would be expanded to also supply CSG for LNG export (Arrow Energy, 2014, pers. comm.).
