Minister for Primary Industry and Resources, Ken Vowles, and Assistant Minister for Primary Industry and Resources, Jeff Collins, are in Tennant Creek to attend a ceremony at Jemena’s Phillip Creek Compressor Station to mark the completion of construction of the Northern Gas Pipeline (NGP).

“Territory Government is developing our resources sector in a safe and sustainable manner, and focused on Tennant Creek as a mining services hub.” Minister for Primary Industry and Resources Ken Vowles said.

 

Northern Territory Government awarded Jemena the tender to build, own and operate the NGP, and the $800 Million, 622 km pipeline runs from Tennant Creek to Mount Isa, linking to the Amadeus Gas Pipeline and Carpentaria Pipeline.

“Today we have taken a significant step towards ensuring Australian homes and businesses have the gas they need, when they need it.” Jemena Managing Director Frank Tudor said.

NGP has created more than 1,100 jobs in total, and seen Territory contractors share in $52 Million of investment, including 11 contracts awarded to Territory Aboriginal businesses.
