McConnell Dowell was awarded the contract to undertake pipeline and flowline works as part of the project in January 2015, which comprises installation of eight flowlines ranging from 150–250 mm in diameter. Total pipeline length is 120 km across the eight lines, with the shortest line at 1 km and longest at 41 km. The project will enable this gas to be captured and moved through the existing network to the Ballera plant for processing. “The South West Queensland Project has come together very smoothly and continues the strong working relationship between Santos and McConnell Dowell over the last couple of years, which has included completed projects such as the Mereenie flowlines, the Moomba to Big Lake Fuel Gas Pipeline and the Tirrawarra flowlines,” SWQP expansion Project Manager Stephen Kneen said. The project is the first stage in the development of the region north of Coonaberry. It will also enable delivery of gas reserves to the Ballera processing facility and further development of this region. Joint venture partners are Santos, Beach Energy and Origin Energy.
