Project Details

  • Operator: Jemena
  • Parent Company: Jemena
  • Current Capacity: 597.13 million cubic feet per day
  • Length: 7.2 Miles / 12 kilometers
  • Status: Proposed
  • Start Year: 2022

Background

In June 2020 Jemena submitted a plan for the pipeline to the New South Wales government. Jemena director Frank Tudor asserted that a connection to the Port Kembla FSRU would provide cheaper gas than the proposed West-East Gas Pipeline from western Australia.[2]

In March 2021, it was announced that Jemena had signed a deal with Australian Industrial Energy (AIE) to connect the Port Kembla FSRU LNG import terminal to the Eastern Gas Pipeline via the 12 kilometre Port Kembla to EGP Gas Pipeline which Jemena will build and operate.[3]
