Alice Springs-Moomba plan from NEGI bidder

The consortium, which includes PetroChina, is one of four bidders shortlisted to develop the pipeline, alongside APA Group, Jemena and DUET Group. PCPA Director Diana Shen said that while the route is longer than other options under consideration, requiring a larger investment, it offers the best prospects of bringing forward exploration and production of significant gas reserves in the NT. NT News reports that talks with traditional landowners and pastoralists about the preferred route have already been conducted. Three main routes are being considered for the proposed pipeline, with one option being a 600 km pipeline from Tennant Creek to Mt Isa at an estimated cost of $A900 million. APA Group has also flagged a potential 700 km pipeline connection from the 1,629 km, 100–350 mm diameter Amadeus Gas Pipeline to the 840 km, 324 mm diameter Carpentaria Gas Pipeline. Final proposals to develop the NEGI Pipeline are due on 30 September 2015, with evaluation set to take place in October 2015
