It is a step ahead in work being done under the Memorandum of Understanding with Comet Ridge and Vintage Energy to connect their tenements to gas markets.
“The granting of the survey licence means we can get out into the field and commence working with stakeholders along a potential route,” APA managing director Rob Wheals said.
“We are very pleased to have partnered with Comet Ridge and Vintage Energy to work together towards making this happen.”
The proposed Galilee Moranbah Pipeline and associated infrastructure would be built, owned and operated by APA.
About 240km in length, the greenfields pipeline would connect gas sources in the Galilee Basin to Moranbah – the gas processing and distribution hub for northern Bowen Basin gas resources.
