Construction has resumed on the NGP in the Northern Territory.

Progress on Jemena’s Northern Gas Pipeline (NGP), the biggest pipeline project currently underway in Australia, continues after seasonal break.

After a break over the wet season, McConnell Dowell’s project team on the Northern Gas Pipeline project in the Northern Territory is back on the ground to continue construction on the pipeline between Tennant Creek and Mount Isa.

The stringing and bending operations have made good progress with 34.7 km of pipe strung out along the Right of Way (RoW) in the first week back.

Jemena, with contractors McConnell Dowell and Spiecapag Australia, began construction on the 622 km, 304.8 mm (12 inch) NGP in July this 2017.

McConnell Dowell is constructing the 481 km Northern Territory section of the pipeline, beginning in Tennant Creek, with Spiecapag constructing the 141 km Queensland section beginning in Mt Isa.
