Work on pipeline connecting Beetaloo to Darwin underway

08 Sep 2020 3:00 PM | Sonia Harvey (Administrator)

CNC Project Management has been awarded a contract to plan out the route for a vital pipeline that will connect the Beetaloo Basin to Darwin.

The pipeline will be the "missing piece" of the puzzle in developing the massive onshore Beetaloo Sub-Basin. 

According to tender documents, the Northern Territory government has given a contract worth $327,140, to CNC to carry out scoping and pipeline route planning. 

The proposed pipeline will be 100-metres wide and run through a corridor near the Stuart Highway, through Katherine and Pine Creek, to Darwin's industrial area. 

Under the pre-feasibility study scope, CNC will be required to consider landowner arrangements where the pipeline will be laid. CNC will also consider engineering, geotechnical, environmental, and financial considerations. 

"This is aimed to provide clarity to the Gas Taskforce and Government for future decisions regarding acquisition of a corridor to transport gas from onshore reserves to existing and planned gas industry infrastructure," the tender documents state. 

The award comes as the Northern Territory government looks to fast-track onshore oil and gas exploration in an effort to support a potential manufacturing industry in the Top End. 

Currently Origin Energy, Falcon Oil & Gas, Santos, Armour, and Empire Energy are exploring vast potential liquids rich gas resources across the Beetaloo and broader McArthur basins.
