Expansion projects

Capacity expansion for Beetaloo Basin

In the 2021 Australian National Gas Infrastructure Plan (NGIP), a major component of unlocking Beetaloo Basin natural gas resources is building the Beetaloo Lateral Pipeline, and along with it, a 350-terajoule-per-day expansion of either the Amadeus Gas Pipeline, the Northern Gas Pipeline, or the Carpentaria Gas Pipeline.[4] There were no details on potential ownership, though the plan mentions the need for such infrastructure to be in place by 2025.
