The Queensland Government-funded 28-kilometre Bundaberg Gas Pipeline is nearing completion with engineering company Zinfra Group recently completing all construction and testing.

APA Group will be installing five additional offtake points between December 2016 and January 2017 and expect the pipeline to be commissioned by the end of February 2017.

As well as delivering a much needed economic boost and creating future investment opportunities for the region, the pipeline is critical infrastructure to support the new $70 million Knauf Plasterboard facility currently under construction with commissioning of the facility expected by July 2017.

The Department of State Development is working with Bundaberg Regional Council and local industry stakeholders to further capitalise on the pipeline to secure new industry and jobs for the Bundaberg region.
