Queensland Issues Terms of Reference for Bowen Gas Project
Government of Queensland has issued the draft terms of reference (TOR) to guide development of an environmental impact statement (EIS) for Arrow’s planned Bowen Basin coal seam gas expansion.
The Department of Environment and Heritage Protection (DEHP) has issued the draft TOR for the Bowen Gas Project to inform environmental studies on the project. The Bowen Gas Project is one of two upstream coal seam gas developments which form part of the Arrow liquefied natural gas (LNG) project.
The EIS will outline the project’s scope, potential impacts and mitigations, and involves extensive consultation with communities, government and industry stakeholders.
Bowen Gas Project would involve a staged development of up to 7,000 gas wells over the next 40 years, each with a lifespan of between 15 and 20 years. The expansion would be in an area from 30km north of Glenden to 10km south of Blackwater, and include pipelines, gas processing, power generation, water treatment and storage.
The Arrow LNG project will extract and transport coal seam gas from Queensland’s Bowen and Surat basins to be liquefied at our LNG Plant at Curtis Island, off Gladstone.
