Jemena, an Australian energy infrastructure company, has been granted approval for the construction of the first 344 km of the AUS$800 million Northern Gas Pipeline project.

The transmission pipeline, which is expected to be a total of 622 km long, will transport natural gas from the Northern Territory to Mount Isa in Queensland.

Resources Minister, Ken Vowles, has stated that the pipeline project is expected to create approximately 900 jobs during the construction phase alone.

He explained: "the construction of the Northern Gas Pipeline will underpin jobs, investment and development in the region for years to come … Jemena has indicated that it will start construction on this portion as soon as practicable to take advantage of the dry season."

It has been predicted that around 240 km of the pipeline will be laid in 2017, with first gas flow expected in 2018.
