JEMENA STARTS CONSTRUCTION OF ATLAS GAS PIPELINE IN QUEENSLAND
Australian energy company Jemena, has started construction of the Atlas gas pipeline.
The Atlas Gas Pipeline Project is a 60 kilometre long, buried gas pipeline between Senex Energy’s Atlas Gas Field, west of Wandoan, and Jemena’s Darling Downs Pipeline, and includes a compressor station, located close to the Atlas Gas Field.
The Atlas Gas Pipeline Project plays an important part in delivering Jemena’s Northern Growth Strategy, which seeks to build an interconnected supply chain of energy delivery assets in northern Australia through targeted acquisitions and greenfield developments.
Construction will be undertaken this year, with commissioning of the project expected by the end of 2019.
Jemena will work closely with the local community to ensure they are informed as Jemena develops the Atlas Gas Pipeline Project.
The Atlas field operated by Senex, is a 58 square kilometre block of natural gas acreage in Queensland’s Surat Basin to be developed for the Australian domestic gas market. The high quality acreage currently holds 144 petajoules of 2P reserves to be developed through approximately 100 wells and a Jemena owned 32 terajoules per day firm gas processing facility and 60 kilometre pipeline. The gas will be delivered to the Wallumbilla hub with first gas targeted for 2019.
Based in Melbourne, Jemena is an Australian company that owns, manages or operates energy infrastructure assets in the eastern states of Australia including Queensland and New South Wales, and gas pipelines and gas and electricity distribution networks in Victoria and the Northern Territory.
