Hunter Gas Pipeline Pty Ltd (HGP) is planning to undertake the Queensland to Hunter Gas Pipeline (QHGP) project in New South Wales, Australia.
The project involves the construction of an 833km underground natural gas pipeline. The pipeline will initially transport coal-seam methane gas collected in the south central Queensland gas field.
The project includes the construction of 222km pipeline route in Queensland and the remaining 611km in New South Wales. The pipeline will be 500mm in diameter and have a capacity of 85 petajoules per annum. A small lateral of length 10km will be also extended from the main corridor to the Maitland area in New South Wales.
The project also includes the construction of two metering stations located at Wallumbilla and Hunter Valley, while others will be constructed as required according to the design. The proposed pipeline is buried at 0.7m into the ground. It will pass through ten local government areas in NSW – Moree Plains, Narrabri, Gunnedah, Liverpool Plains, Upper Hunter, Singleton, Muswellbrook, Maitland, Port Stephens and Newcastle.
Allens Arthur Robinson has been appointed to advise on the tender process and contracts for the development of the project and Manidis Roberts has been appointed as project management consultant (PMC).
