APLNG project plugs into electricity network

WORK is complete on the final connection for Australia Pacific LNG to plug into Powerlink Queensland's new transmission network in the North West Surat Basin.

The new high-voltage electricity infrastructure is now powering three Australia Pacific LNG gas processing facilities between Roma and Wandoan, delivering coal seam gas into the 530 kilometre pipeline to its LNG facility on Curtis Island.

The announcement coincides with Treasurer Curtis Pitt's tour today of APLNG's facility on Curtis Island with APLNG CEO Page Maxson.

"The $60 billion gas industry is a major source of employment in Queensland," Mr Pitt said.

"Powerlink's delivery of this project is helping to secure jobs and support the state's ongoing economic growth."
