Australia: Arrow LNG Project Gets Environmental Approval
Arrow Energy has welcomed today’s Queensland Government approval of its planned liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant on Curtis Island off Gladstone, in central Queensland.
“Today’s announcement by Deputy Premier Jeff Seeney marks an important milestone in our journey towards our Arrow LNG project,” Arrow CEO Andrew Faulkner said.
“Coordinator-General Barry Broe has assessed and approved the Arrow LNG Plant’s environmental impact statement.
“It means we now have state-level approval for three of the five components of the overall Arrow CSG-LNG project, namely the LNG plant and our pipelines from the Surat and Bowen basins.
“Today’s announcement is welcome news for our overall project and demonstrates we’re meeting the rigorous government approvals process.”
The LNG plant project includes a sub-harbour gas pipeline tunnel from Gladstone to Port Curtis, jetties and loading facilities.
