Northern Gas Pipeline Finalizes Land Arrangements

May 2017

Jemena has finalized land access arrangements with the Wakaya People for the $800 million Northern Gas Pipeline (NGP). The company has now secured land access with all Traditional Owner groups across the 386-mile pipeline route in both the Northern Territory and Queensland.

As part of the agreement, Jemena will work with the Wakaya People to make sure they benefit from the NGP’s $6 million jobs and training package alongside all traditional owners on the pipeline route.

Construction of the Northern Gas Pipeline is scheduled to begin mid-2017, and the project is expected to be operational in 2018.
