The Arrow Bowen Pipeline will connect activites in the Bowen Basin with the export facility off Gladstone.
Arrow's planned LNG Project will involve extracting and transporting CSG from sites in Queensland to Curtis Island, off Gladstone. There the gas will be cooled to -161°C to form LNG and prepared for shipping internationally.
The Arrow Bowen Pipeline (ABP) will transport CSG more than 500km from the Bowen Basin in central Queensland to Curtis Island. The steel pipeline will be buried at a minimum depth of 750mm in a 30m easement.
The Initial Advice Statement provides details of the proposed development to the State Government and includes a proposed pipeline route. It will be subject to detailed studies including an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS).
Arrow lodged the draft EIS for the Arrow Bowen Pipeline in December 2011. This was approved by the State Government for public release in March 2012 and submissions are currently being considered.
The construction of the ABP is separate to Arrow's exploration activities in the Bowen Basin.
