Australian gas consumers will soon benefit from new gas supplies after leading energy infrastructure company, Jemena, commenced construction of the Atlas Gas Pipeline today.

Located approximately 20km south-west of Wandoan in Queensland, the Atlas Gas Pipeline Project will see Jemena and its partners construct a 60km, 8 inch steel-coated, buried gas pipeline and compressor station, which will connect gas from Senex Energy’s Atlas gas field to the east-coast gas market via the Wallumbilla Gas Hub.

The Atlas acreage is Queensland’s first domestic-only gas supply with all gas ear-marked for the domestic market.

Jemena’s Executive General Manager of Gas Markets, Antoon Boey, said construction and commissioning of the Atlas project is expected to be complete before the end of 2019.

“We are currently in the early stages of construction, with around 90 people on site conducting clear and grade and stringing activities, and we expect this work to ramp up quickly over the coming weeks,” said Mr Boey.

“The Atlas pipeline and processing facility have been designed to enable further expansion once additional gas reserves become available from the Atlas production area.”

Jemena recently awarded Spiecapag Australia a $20 million contract to construct the Atlas Gas Pipeline, while Australian energy and infrastructure services group, Valmec, has been appointed to construct the Atlas Compressor Station. In total, Jemena will invest around $140 million to construct the Atlas Gas Pipeline Project which is expected to create around 150 to 200 jobs in Queensland.
