Jemena begins to expand Roma North facility
Australian energy infrastructure company Jemena has started expanding the Roma North gas processing facility in Queensland’s Maranoa region, it said on May 16.
The company expects the capacity of the Roma North facility to increase by about 50%, with Jemena set to transport gas from the facility on behalf of oil and gas explorer Senex Energy to their customer, Gladstone LNG. At present, the processing facility is capable of delivering 16 terajoules/day of gas. The project will take between three to four months to complete, Jemena said.
Queensland-based Wasco Australia was awarded a construction contract for the project. “Together with our client and developer of the Roma North gas field, Senex Energy, we’re excited to partner with Wasco Australia to deliver the next stage of the Roma North gas processing facility,” Jemena’s executive general manager of gas markets, Antoon Boey, said. “The expansion will enable us to deliver increased flows from Senex’s Roma North gas field to market.”
Jemena acquired the Roma North facility from Senex Energy for A$50mn ($38.8mn) in June 2019. That transaction saw Jemena come to own and operate the processing facility and an associated pipeline. It already owns gas assets in the area including the Atlas gas pipeline, the Darling Downs pipeline network, and the Queensland gas pipeline. Additional gas is expected to flow as part of the Roma North expansion in September, it said.
