Jemena Completes Restoration Works on the Queensland Gas Pipeline

Mar 15, 2024

Energy infrastructure company, Jemena, has finalised repair works on a portion of the Queensland Gas Pipeline (QGP) following an incident which impacted the QGP on Tuesday, 5 March 2024. As part of restoration activities, Jemena mobilised work crews to the remote site – which is located between the Rolleston Compressor Station and Oombabeer, west of Gladstone. 

Restoration activities for the return of the pipeline to service progressed over 11 days and saw crew conduct safety and engineering assessments, excavation, installation, welding, and construction works. Works onsite will continue over the coming days to reinstate the site.

As a next step, Jemena will now commence to reintroduce gas into the QGP at reduced volumes in accordance with safety standards and procedures. This will increase the quantity of gas that is available to customers. 

Jemena expects the volume of gas flows on the QGP will be increased progressively in accordance with safety requirements. Throughout the process Jemena will continue to liaise with the Technical Regulator. 

Jemena will also continue to engage with our customers to coordinate gas deliveries while we work towards restoration of normal operating conditions.

Jemena would like to thank the Gladstone, Rockhampton, and surrounding communities for their support and patience throughout the restoration period.

Jemena would also like to extend its thanks and sincere appreciation to its industry peers who supported the company’s restoration efforts as well as its commercial customers who were impacted by the outage.
