Transmission network extension in North West Surat
Powerlink has been requested by Santos GLNG to establish direct connections into the high voltage transmission network to supply power to its future gas processing facilities in the area west of Wandoan and east of Injune.
To meet this request, Powerlink is extending its network in the North West Surat Basin via three projects to ensure landowners and other important stakeholders receive information, and can provide comment on matters that are relevant to them. The three projects are:
In July 2012, Powerlink commenced three projects to identify and ultimately acquire the transmission line easements and land required for the proposed infrastructure. Environmental specialist GHD was appointed to undertake separate Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) processes for each project.
Community consultation is an essential part of the EIA process. Powerlink and GHD representatives met with potentially affected landowners, stakeholders and interested members of the community to further understand the potential impacts of the proposed infrastructure.
Further information about each project, including its status, is available by clicking on the project names above.
