Federal government approves Arrow Bowen pipeline EIS
The Federal Government approved the Arrow Bowen Pipeline environmental impact assessment.
The proposed central Queensland pipeline, expected to be about 500km in length, will take coal seam gas from Moranbah in the Bowen Basin to Gladstone.
Arrow CEO Andrew Faulkner said the environmental approval followed last month’s Queensland Government approval of an environmental impact statement for Arrow’s Bowen Basin gas field development and the company’s announcement of FEED for the development of the Bowen Gas Project.
“The proposed pipeline is a key piece of infrastructure in our plans to bring to market our significant gas reserves in the Bowen Basin,” Faulkner said.
The buried pipeline will allow CSG to be sent from Arrow’s gas fields in the Bowen Basin to Gladstone.
The Queensland Government approved the pipeline EIS in March last year.
Faulkner also said development options for Arrow’s Surat Basin gas reserves were being progressed, and that collaboration discussions with third parties were continuing to identify the best option for commercialising Arrow’s gas reserves in both the Surat and Bowen basins.
