Australian utility AGL Energy has set out to assess its gas import jetty and pipeline project through an environment effects statement (EES) process. 

The project, jointly proposed by AGL and APA, natural gas and electricity assets owner and operator, will have the import jetty at Crib Point with a pipeline connecting the facility to the gas transmission network at Pakenham.

The EES will look at the potential environmental, social, economic and planning impacts of the project as well as the approach to mitigating these impacts and any subsequent approvals or conditions.

The project includes mooring a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) at the existing Crib Point jetty. Construction of new jetty piping will enable regasified natural gas to be transferred from the FSRU to a new pipeline receiving facility onshore at Crib Point.

The project also includes the construction of a high-pressure gas pipeline from the receiving facility to a location east of Pakenham, which is approximately 56 kilometers in length.

The above ground pipeline facilities at Crib Point and east of Pakenham to enable gas delivery and connection to the existing gas transmission network.

AGL is responsible for the FSRU and jetty infrastructure and APA for the pipeline works.

This process is expected to be concluded in late 2019, early 2020 and works to proceed shortly thereafter, AGL said in its statement.
