Pilot Energy

Pilot Energy is leveraging managements extensive energy industry experience and its existing oil & gas assets along with established infrastructure to develop competitive, clean energy projects. Pilot is taking a lead role in the energy transition in WA and plans to capitalise on:

  • its material petroleum tenement interests which overlap recognised world class renewable & natural resources in mid west & south west WA
  • its ownership of key energy licences & infrastructure
  • re-tasking of existing infrastructure and acquiring complementary assets to provide clean energy
  • management expertise and partnership arrangements to implement the business strategy

Pilot is a junior oil and gas exploration and production company that is pursuing the diversification and transition to the development of carbon management projects, production of hydrogen and clean ammonia (blue, green and teal) for export to emerging APAC Clean Energy markets and integrated renewable energy. Pilot intends to leverage its existing oil and gas operations and infrastructure to cornerstone these developments. Pilot is proposing to develop Australia's first offshore CCS Project through the conversion of the Cliff Head Oil field and associated infrastructure from oil production to CCS as part of the Mid West Clean Energy Project. 

Pilot holds a 21.25% interest in the Cliff Head Oil field and Cliff Head Infrastructure, and a 100% working interest in WA-481-P and EP416/480 exploration permits, located offshore and onshore Western Australia.

Strategy and Opportunity

Existing infrastructure, abundant renewable, CCS and gas resources and ability to provide carbon management services are Pilot’s key enablers for the production of competitive clean energy and ammonia..

Pilot Energy’s Development Plan

In 2022 Pilot completed feasibility studies with global expertise. Based on feasibility results, Pilot plans to leverage existing assets to develop world class clean energy projects in Mid West and South West regions, with an initial focus on the Mid West Clean Energy Project. Key strategic and financial partners and customers into the MWCEP will be introduced over time to maximise value for Pilot shareholders. Interested parties include those with capacity to participate as a project partner, ammonia and or CO2 storage offtake and to act as the project engineering, procurement, and construction contractor.




Note: The map depicts Pilot’s projects and facilities together with infrastructure that Pilot proposes to develop subject to the results of the feasibility studies may include, as shown above, a CO2 pipeline and injection facility, blue hydrogen plants, CCS sites, offshore and onshore wind, solar, renewable hydrogen plant, substation, transmission lines and hydrogen pipelines.

Integrating Infrastructure, Renewables and Carbon Management to Deliver Competitive Clean Energy

  • Blue Hydrogen & CCS development opportunities
  • Mid-West Focus Region has multiple potential offshore wind development sites
  • Onshore footprint provides opportunity for integrated wind and solar development
  • South-West Focus Region has significant potential to provide the region a carbon management service
