AGN wins major gas supply contract

SA-based Australian Gas Networks (AGN) has won a connect and supply contract with the AU$600 million North Harbour development at Moreton Bay, Queensland.

AGN is investing an estimated AU$13.2 million over the next 20 years to connect and supply gas to the project, and will outlay an initial $5 million constructing a 10.5 km high pressure gas pipeline into the new development.

A further estimated AU$8.2 million will then be invested by the company over the next 20 years laying and connecting in excess of 64 km of reticulation piping to each individual property – whether that be residential, commercial or retail.

Work commenced on the high pressure pipeline in July 2015 and is expected to be completed by December.

North Harbour Project Director Peter Lightbody said the gas pipeline was a significant feature of the state-of-the-art development.

He said in its first year of development, reticulation mains piping will be constructed to the initial two stages of North Harbour’s residential precinct, which is expected to accommodate its maiden residents in the first-half of the 2016 calendar year.
