The Australian Energy Market Commission published a rule determination to harmonise the start time of the gas day used in the short-term trading market hubs and the gas supply hub trading locations with the gas day start time used in the Victorian declared wholesale gas market. This start time is 6.00 am Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST).

Gas Day Harmonisation: Arrow Energy Transition Plan

Arrow is seeking federal environmental approval for eight off-tenure gas and water pipelines, to tie Arrow’s Surat Gas Project into Shell QGC’s existing infrastructure.

Using Shell QGC’s existing upstream infrastructure will reduce impacts to landholders, communities and the environment.

As part of the government approval process, Arrow submitted an application (referral) under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act) to the Federal Department of Environment and Energy.

The department requires Arrow to provide, for public comment, preliminary documentation to address the EPBC requirements, including how Arrow will mitigate impact to native animal populations.

This includes:

  • pipeline alignment selected to reduce potential impact
  • co-locating around 85 per cent of new infrastructure with existing infrastructure or in existing, cleared areas, significantly reducing the infrastructure footprint
  • measures to reduce impact throughout the construction process.
