Australian energy producer Strike Energy Limited has received initial approvals to develop West Erregulla, an onshore gas field under exploration permit EP 469 near Perth in Western Australia. Exploration permit EP 469 is owned by a 50:50 joint venture between Strike Energy (operator) and Warrego Energy 469 (Hancock Prospecting). The developers expect to commence operations in late 2024, once final environmental approval is received from the Western Australian Environmental Protection Agency. Phase one of the project is expected to produce 87 TJ/d. The gas produced will be supplied to a gas processing plant operated by Australian Gas Infrastructure Operations (AGI Operations).

In August 2020, Strike Energy signed a gas purchase agreement with CSBP, a fertilizer producer, to supply 100 PJ of gas from West Erregulla for 11 years at a maximum rate of 25 TJ/d from the start of production at the field.

The West Erregulla gas field contains an estimated proven and probable reserves of 422 PJ and is located approximately 350 km north-east of Perth, Western Australia in the Greater Erregulla region, which includes the South Erregulla gas field in PL24. It is 100% owned and operated by Strike Energy.
