Gas pipeline milestone for Project Atlas
Senex partnered with Jemena to build, own and operate a 15 petajoule per annum (40 TJ/day) gas processing facility and 60km buried pipeline to the Wallumbilla Hub.
Jemena has now reached mechanical completion of the pipeline, less than three months since construction began in July.
Senex Energy says construction of the Project Atlas gas processing facility near Wandoan is ongoing, with commissioning of the facility and pipeline to begin soon.
Project Atlas is the first acreage in Australia designated to supply gas to the domestic market and will supply major Queensland manufacturers including CSR Limited, Orora Limited and O-I Australia.
Managing director and chief executive officer Ian Davies said Senex and its partners continued to meet every development milestone in the Surat Basin undertaking.
“Project Atlas is supporting both local construction jobs and the manufacturing industry, with gas to be sold to local manufacturers including CSR, Orora and O-I, with more contracts currently under negotiation,” Mr Davies said.
