Northern Gas Pipeline Construction Complete

14 Dec 2018 2:08 PM | Sonia Harvey (Administrator)

Minister for Primary Industry and Resources, Ken Vowles, and Assistant Minister for Primary Industry and Resources, Jeff Collins, are in Tennant Creek today to attend a ceremony at Jemena’s Phillip Creek Compressor Station to mark the completion of construction of the Northern Gas Pipeline (NGP).

The NT Government awarded Jemena the tender to build, own and operate the NGP, and the $800m, 622km pipeline runs from Tennant Creek to Mount Isa, linking to the Amadeus Gas Pipeline and Carpentaria Pipeline.

The NGP has created more than 1,100 hundred jobs in total, and seen Territory contractors share in $52 million of investment, including 11 contracts awarded to Territory Aboriginal businesses.

Quotes from Minister for Primary Industry and Resources, Ken Vowles:

“The Territory Labor Government is developing our resources sector in a safe and sustainable manner, and focused on Tennant Creek as a mining services hub.

“We are creating jobs – which is our number one priority - and supporting local business by becoming a hub for gas production, export, innovation, manufacturing and services.

“The completion of the construction of the NGP shows Territory workers and businesses can deliver on major gas projects, and the NT Government can work through the necessary permit processes complex projects such as this require.

“It also means the Territory is contributing to national energy security, which is in the NT Government’s Five Point NT Gas Strategy.

“Importantly, the construction of the NGP has boosted investment and development in the Tennant Creek region, with many local contractors and workers benefiting.”

Quotes from Jemena Managing Director, Frank Tudor:

“Today we have taken a significant step towards ensuring Australian homes and businesses have the gas they need, when they need it.

“We know that the Northern Territory has enough gas to meet Australia’s future supply needs for the next 200 years or more.”
