NGP on progress on track

CONSTRUCTION of the $800 million Northern Gas Pipeline is on track following the arrival of the first pipes, according to Jemena’s project director.

The NGP will connect Tennant Creek to Mt Isa in Queensland. The first gas is expected to flow in 2018. The project is partly underwritten by the excess gas of PowerWater, and is expected to create 900 jobs.

Jonathan Spink told NT Business Review this week’s arrival of 160km of pipe from overseas was within project timelines. The material will now be transported to Tennant Creek, where it will be stockpiled. Another three shipments will complete the 622km of pipe.

“At this stage, we are planning to commence construction next year as planned,” Mr Spink said. “This will be subject to all necessary environmental approvals and land access being granted. It will also depend on the extent of the wet season.

“This pipe will now be shipped to Tennant Creek by rail where we will store it until we are ready to build.”
