Investment and jobs are the two words the State Government are using to describe the announcement today of a major project for the region.
Minister for State Development Anthony Lynham said Arrow’s expansion plans would deliver timely gas to the domestic market, with a looming east coast supply.
“Arrow is looking at 90 news wells initially and another 180 wells over the next 25 years,” This next engineering phase that Arrow has announced today will inform a final investment decision that could take production capacity to more than 80 terrajoules a day.”
Dr Lynham says it was yet further evidence that Queensland was doing the heavy lifting on gas.
“Tomorrow’s Federal Budget is the Prime Minister’s opportunity to show leadership on this national issue and invest in more pipelines to connect Queensland’s gas supply with users.
“We have the resources, the investors, and the political will to boost gas supply. We just need the Commonwealth to provide direct and substantial infrastructure investment in the national interest.”
