Phosphate Australia Limited (POZ) is planning to construct a slurry pipeline in Queensland, Australia.
The project involves the construction of a 266km, 0.355m diameter steel pipeline to transport up to 3 million metric tonnes per annum (MMTPA) of phosphate slurry from Highland Plains to dewatering and storage facilities, located on the Gulf of Carpentaria. It also includes the construction of a pump station and the installation of umbilical, manifolds and rigid jumpers.
In February 2010, Slurry Systems Engineering was appointed to undertake a feasibility study.
Cube Consulting has been appointed as a consulting engineer, and Gresham Advisory Partners Limited as legal adviser.
In March 2010, POZ released a scoping study for the project.
In September 2010, POZ investigated three potential routes for the pipeline. The routes are a 266km pipeline with two pump stations along the site at Calvert River located in the Northern Territory, at an estimated cost of US$226 million; a 220km pipeline with one pump station located at Tully Inlet, Queensland, at an estimated cost of US$226 million; and a 224km pipeline with one pump station at Burketown, Queensland, for US$192 million.
In July 2012, the POZ entered into non-binding discussions with a group of companies for a strategic financial partner to construct the pipeline.
In September 2012, POZ placed the project temporarily on hold as it failed to find a strategic financial partner to construct the pipeline.
As of January 2017, POZ is in the process of securing a equity partner towards the implementation of the proposed plans.
The project involves the construction of a 266km, 0.355m diameter steel pipeline from Highland Plains to dewatering and storage facilities, located on the Gulf of Carpentaria, Australia.
The US$226 million project includes the following:
