Senex Energy this week announced a second domestic gas sales agreement for its Project Atlas development, 20km south-west of Wandoan.
Under an initial two-year agreement, Senex will supply manufacturer Orora with 1.1 PJ from January 2020 and 2.2 PJ from January 2021.
There is built-in potential to extend the deal six years from January 2022 for up to 6.6 PJ of gas.
Gas will be supplied at the Wallumbilla Gas Hub in Queensland.
“We’re delighted to secure Orora as a customer and support this world-class manufacturer of cardboard, glass and aluminium packaging products which are used by millions of Australians each year,” Senex managing director and chief executive officer Ian Davies said.
With two gas sales agreements now secured and drilling to start later this month, Senex was accelerating rapidly towards first gas from Project Atlas at the end of this year, Mr Davies said.
Senex Energy has partnered with Jemena to build the processing facility.
Toowoomba-based company FKG Group has commenced civil works on the Project Atlas gas processing facility and the construction contract has been awarded to Valmec.
