Jemena expands Roma North gas processing facility

Australian gas infrastructure company Jemena has completed the expansion of the Roma North gas processing facility in Queensland, it said on September 2. Jemena and its partners finalised testing at the site last month.

The expansion has increased the processing facility’s capacity by about 50%, so it can now process around 24 terajoules/day of gas, in line with increasing production from Senex Energy's Roma North gas field. Jemena will transport gas from the facility on behalf of Senex to their customer, Gladstone LNG. The project was delivered in concert with Jemena’s construction partner, Queensland-based Wasco Australia and engineering and project management company, Zinfra.


The National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago Limited (NGC) NGC’s HSSE strategy is reflective and supportive of the organisational vision to become a leader in the global energy business.

Jemena acquired the Roma North processing facility for A$50mn ($37.1mn) from Senex in June 2019 as part of plans to create an interconnected network of gas infrastructure assets across Queensland and the Northern Territory.

“By enabling more gas to be transported flexibly across northern Australia we’re helping to place downward pressure on gas prices, while ensuring this important source of energy continues to be available for industries which rely on gas to underpin their operations,” Jemena’s executive general manager of gas markets, Antoon Boey, said.

Boey said Jemena is also working to develop renewable gases, such as hydrogen and biomethane, as part of a diversified low-carbon energy system
