The pipeline will be between 610–860 mm in diameter and will be buried at least 750 mm, with the proposed route beginning in the southern part of the Whitsunday region through the Isaac, Rockhampton and Gladstone local government areas.

The construction process will involve a 40 m right-of-way (ROW), with work to last around three to six months at any point along the construction ROW, given favourable weather.

The pipeline’s environmental impact statement was approved by the Queensland Government in March 2013, while an application for Commonwealth approval is still being assessed.
