Spiecapag Australia has been awarded the contract to construct a 60km pipeline as part of Jemena’s $140 million Atlas Gas Pipeline Project in south-west Queensland.
Jemena’s project director, Mark Turner, said Spiecapag was selected following a competitive tender process.
“Spiecapag has a proven record in constructing complex pipelines in regional Queensland, and brings to the table an exceptional understanding of the local terrain and environment,” Mr Turner said.
“Spiecapag’s performance as Jemena’s Queensland construction partner on the $800 million Northern Gas Pipeline in 2018 means we have every confidence that they are the right team to help us deliver this project on time and on budget.”
Mr Turner said Spiecapag would join Jemena at a series of information sessions in Roma, Miles and Wandoan this week to outline business and other opportunities associated with the construction of the pipeline.
“In its entirety, we expect the construction of the Atlas Gas Pipeline Project will create between 150 and 200 jobs,” he said.
Jemena was awarded the right to build, own, and operate the Atlas Gas Pipeline Project by Senex Energy last year.
The pipeline will span 60km from Senex Energy’s Atlas acreage, south-west of Wandoan, to Jemena’s Darling Downs pipeline, near Yuleba.
The project also includes a compressor station, currently under construction by Valmec, about 20km from Wandoan.
Once completed by the end of the year, the Atlas gas pipeline will have the capacity to transport 40 terajoules of gas per day.
