State Gas CNG facility powers ahead

State Gas CNG

State Gas has achieved mechanical completion and commenced commissioning of its CNG facility in Queensland.

Construction first commenced in October 2023 and experienced 45 weather interrupted days.

State Gas noted that 92 uninterrupted construction gas to achieve completion is an “excellent outcome” and in line with the company’s original time estimates.

“Through the discipline and collaboration of its construction teams, the landholder and other stakeholder groups, the construction phase was completed with no reportable incidents and no lost time injuries,” the company said.

Now, the Rougemont 2/3 dual lateral coal seams gas well has been connected to the new surface processing equipment and gathering system and dewatering has recommenced in preparation for first gas production and sales.

Observed water flows are greater than those achieved when the well was first dewatered in early 2023.

Initial cargoes of CNG will be sold to a local coal mine, that is in stages of trialling diesel/gas hybrid truck engines as part of their coal mining truck fleet.

State Gas is working closely with that customer to align the gas production timetable with the customer’s readiness to receive the cargoes of CNG.
