Senex announces Project Atlas milestone as pipeline construction starts

Company News

by Anna Napoli

Senex Energy (ASX:SXY) has today announced the start of construction on the pipeline that will supply natural gas from Project Atlas to domestic customers.

In June 2018 Senex partnered with major energy infrastructure provider Jemena to build, own and operate a 15 petajoule per annum (40 TJ/day) natural gas processing facility and 60 km buried pipeline to process and transport gas from Senex’s Project Atlas to the Wallumbilla Hub.

Project Atlas in south-west Queensland’s Surat Basin, is the first acreage in Australia designated solely to supply gas to the domestic market. Senex has recently agreed natural gas supply contracts with major Queensland manufacturers CSR, Orora and O-I Australia.

Senex says it's making excellent progress in the development of Project Atlas, with first gas deliveries to the domestic gas market planned for late 2019.

Shares in Senex (ASX:SXY) are trading 0.71 per cent lower at $0.35.
