Government Approves EIA for the Arrow Bowen Pipeline in Australia
Arrow Energy Pty Ltd. welcomed Wednesday the Australian Federal Government approval of the Arrow Bowen Pipeline environmental impact assessment.
The proposed central Queensland pipeline, expected to be about 310 miles (500 kilometers) 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 (front-end engineering design) 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 coal seam gas 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 said Arrow had been safely developing CSG from the Bowen Basin since 2000 and supplying it commercially since 2004.
He 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.
