Northern Gas Pipeline


Jemena is proud to have been selected by the Northern Territory Government to build, own and operate the Northern Gas Pipeline (NGP).

The 622km pipeline will link Tennant Creek in the Territory to Mount Isa in Queensland, unlocking the next phase of economic growth for the Territory and help build a stronger Northern Australia.

Jemena is currently in the planning phase of the NGP, with construction of the $800 million Project scheduled to commence in 2017, and first gas to flow in 2018.

Environmental Impact Statement /Public Environment Report

Prior to any construction taking place on the ground, a range of government licences and approvals, including a comprehensive review of the environment and the potential impacts from construction, are required.
