MCCONNELL Dowell has won a contract for the design, procurement, construction and commissioning of a pipeline and metering skids from the Northern Territory government’s Power and Water Corporation.

The 150 millimetre, 12 inch pipeline will transport gas between the existing Wickham Point Pipeline and the INPEX-operated gas processing plant at Blaydin Point, outside Darwin.

Design work will commence immediately with commissioning scheduled to begin in September 2015, the company said in an announcement.

The Wickham Point Pipeline is a transmission pipeline originally built to deliver gas in an emergency situation from the Wickham Point LNG plant to the Amadeus Gas Pipelien and Power and Water Corporation’s Weddell Power Station.
