Northern Gas Pipeline


Jemena is proud to have been selected by the Northern Territory Government to build, own and operate the Northern Gas Pipeline (NGP).

The 622km pipeline will link Tennant Creek in the Territory with Mount Isa in Queensland, unlocking the next phase of economic growth for the Northern Territory and help build a stronger Northern Australia.

Construction of the $800 million Project began in July 2017. The first gas is scheduled to flow in late 2018.
