Project owner Arrow Energy Pty Ltd released the expression of interest (EOI) document outlining contractual opportunities on 19 November 2014. The EOI will close on 1 December 2014.
Project owner Arrow Energy Pty Ltd. recently announced that the project will include horizontal directional drilling (HDD) and thrust boring works following the recently received Federal Government approval of the pipeline’s environmental impact assessment.
The Bowen Gas Project will include several watercourse crossings including the Fitzroy River, parts of the Isaac River and Raglan Creek, which will require HDD, and it is proposed that crossings of sealed roads will be undertaken using thrust boring.
The Bowen Gas Project has now moved into its front-end engineering design (FEED) phase as the next step in developing and commercialising Arrow’s significant Bowen Basin gas reserves.
The Clough AMEC joint venture has been awarded the FEED contract, which will take approximately 12 months to complete.
The central Queensland pipeline, expected to be approximately 430 km in length, will take coal seam gas (CSG) from Moranbah in the Bowen Basin to Gladstone, Queensland.
