Jemena is coming to Mount Isa to help get the local supply chain involved in one of the most promising projects north Queensland has seen in years.

The Water and Energy Infrastructure Company was awarded the tender to build, own and operate the Northern Territory Gas Interconnector (NEGI) from Tennant Creek to Mount Isa.

The $800m project includes a 622km pipeline and compressor stations. It is estimated that more than 500 jobs will be created in the process.

With construction expected to commence in early 2017, Jemena is keen to engage local suppliers and business owners and managers, said Mount Isa Chamber of Commerce manager Sue Wicks.

“This is positive news for our region,” Ms Wicks said.

“Join us for a project update from Russell Brooks (Stakeholder and Approvals Manager) and James Kernaghan (Manager, Local and Indigenous Participation). After their presentation, there will be time for questions and networking over morning tea.”

The presentation will be held at the Buffs Club from eight to ten tomorrow morning, (Tuesday December 15).

Jemena is an $8.5 billion company with significant Australian infrastructure assets, including the Queensland Gas Pipeline from Wallumbilla to Gladstone.
