Galilee inks gas pipe MoU with APA

Galilee Energy has signed a non-binding memorandum of understanding (MoU) with energy infrastructure company APA with regards to a potential pipeline to connect the Glenaras gas project in Queensland to the Australian east coast gas markets, it said on September 19.

The terms of the MoU provide a framework for the parties to negotiate agreements under which APA could potentially design, develop and operate the infrastructure to connect the project and utilise its existing assets to provide transport to natural gas markets on the east coast.

APA’s initial concept is to potentially design and develop a pipeline from the Glenaras project to the Cooladdi compressor station on the South West Queensland pipeline (SWQP), which is owned and operated by APA. The Cooladdi compressor station is approximately 420 km south of the Glenaras project area.

The SWQP connects the Moomba gas hub in northeast South Australia to the Wallumbilla gas hub, allowing a bidirectional flow of gas between Queensland and southern markets via the Moomba to Sydney pipeline and the Moomba to Adelaide pipeline system. At Ballera, there is a connection to the Carpentaria gas pipeline which supplies gas to Mount Isa.
