Firm awarded contract for Arrow pipeline design
ARROW Energy is ready to move into the front-end engineering design phase for its proposed Bowen pipeline that will bring gas to Gladstone.
The pipeline is planned to supply gas from the Bowen Basin in central Queensland to LNG facilities at Curtis Island.
Arrow CEO Andrew Faulkner said the front-end engineering design (FEED) contract had been awarded to engineering services firm WorleyParsons, which would produce a preliminary design for the pipeline.
"This pipeline contract is another important step towards commercialising Arrow's significant gas reserves in the Bowen Basin," Mr Faulkner said.
"In September, the company announced it was entering FEED for the Bowen upstream development - the Bowen Gas Project.
"The proposed pipeline, up to 500km, is a key piece of infrastructure in Arrow's plans to bring gas from the Bowen Basin to market."
He said development options for Arrow's Surat Basin gas reserves, in southern Queensland near Dalby, were also being progressed.
