reedy creek wallumbilla pipeline
APA is to design, build, own and operate a new 50-kilometre, bi-directional gas transmission pipeline between APA's Wallumbilla Hub and the Australia Pacific LNG Facility at Reedy Creek. The Reedy Creek Wallumbilla Pipeline (RCWP) will further expand APA’s 7,500 kilometre East Coast Grid and provide a key link to the Wallumbilla Gas Hub for one of the 3 major LNG projects operating out of Gladstone.
As part of the project, APA will also construct the associated connection and compression facilities at Wallumbilla. The total cost of the construction is expected to be around $80 million.
The project is underpinned by a new 20-year contract with Australia Pacific LNG Marketing Pty Limited to provide a bi-directional service of up to 300 terajoules of gas per day on the new pipeline.
