Cooper Energy, AWE and Mitsui will acquire BHP Billiton’s 90% share in the Minerva gas plant at Port Campbell in the Australian state of Victoria, according to local reports.

Cooper Energy already holds the remaining 10%.

“Cooper Energy will acquire the plant after it stops processing gas from the Minerva gas field, which is expected to occur in 2019 with field depletion,” said a Cooper Energy spokesman said.
