McConnell Dowell has been awarded a construction contract by Jemena for the Northern Gas Pipeline (NGP) Project.

The NGP is a 622 km buried gas pipeline between Tennant Creek and Mount Isa, and upon completion, will connect Northern Territory gas fields with the east-coast gas market.

McConnell Dowell’s scope of work involves the engineering, construction and commissioning of a 481 km section of the pipeline, commencing in the Northern Territory.

The award comes after an extensive early contractor involvement process between Jemena and McConnell Dowell, during which time Jemena secured the necessary approvals and land access to allow the project to move forward.

With this award secured, McConnell Dowell will expeditiously commence site activities over the coming weeks with the first gas expected to run through the pipeline in late 2018.

McConnell Dowell CEO Scott Cummins said the company has industry leading experience in the delivery of cross country pipeline projects.

“This project will build on the successful relationship between McConnell Dowell and Jemena and is a testament of the customer’s confidence in our experience and ability to construct this critical infrastructure link,” said Mr Cummins.
