Arrow’s Surat Gas Project (SGP) is a coal seam gas development that will commercialise the majority of Arrow’s gas reserves in the Surat Basin (approx. 5 trillion cubic feet).
It is underpinned by the December 2017, 27-year gas sales agreement between Arrow and the Shell-QGC joint venture, which allows for use of existing QGC-operated infrastructure such as gas compression, processing and transmission infrastructure, water transport and water treatment facilities. Using existing upstream infrastructure will reduce impacts to landholders, to the environment and to communities.
The SGP development includes:
- up to 2,500 CSG wells over its lifetime
- two new proposed Arrow gas processing facilities (near Miles and Tipton/Cecil Plains)
- power generation through onsite gas generators (or reticulation where applicable)
- some off-tenure pipelines.
Phased development activity will commence from an expansion of Arrow’s Tipton fields, near Dalby, and build to new development areas.
The project will bring an additional 240 petajoules per year (PJ/yr) or 655 terajoules per day (TJ/d) of gas to the Queensland market at peak production.
The project will create around 1,000 new jobs, comprising some 800 construction roles and 200 ongoing operational roles.SHOW LESS
