Plans are taking shape for a $600 million gas infrastructure development in Central Queensland.
Jemena has revealed the proposed alignment for its Galilee Gas Pipeline Project near Longreach, 686km west of Rockhampton.
The proposal includes building two compressor stations, two mainline valves and two scraper stations. It also involves connecting the gas supply between Galilee Energy’s Glenaras Gas Project and Jemena’s Queensland Gas Pipeline, spanning 585km in a south easterly direction and ending near Injune.
The proponent expects the pipeline will initially transport 200 terra joules of gas a day.

‘Still early days’
“While it is still early days, our preferred pipeline alignment represents the most efficient way of bringing much needed new gas to market taking into account local terrain and other construction conditions,” Jemena executive general manager of gas markets Antoon Boey said in a public statement.
Public consultation and broad stakeholder engagement is expected to start in the New Year.
“We have set aside significant time to discuss the proposed route with local stakeholders, and anticipate commencing that work at this stage in 2020,” Boey said.
