Tennant Creek to Darwin pipeline & infrastructure corridor prefeasibility study

The Department of Infrastructure, Planning and Logistics is conducting a prefeasibility study to identify a preferred infrastructure corridor from Tennant Creek to Darwin.

The corridor will consider co-location of a range of infrastructure including:

  • multiple high-pressure pipelines
  • other services including water, electrical and communications
  • electrical transmission lines.

The proposed corridor will:

  • allow room for both above and below ground infrastructure that may be required in the longer term
  • be approximately 1,000 km in length and range from 130 metres to 230 metres wide - depending on the types of services it may carry.

Project stages

The project is in the prefeasibility stage.

This is the earliest stage and is for identifying the most appropriate corridor only. No construction is planned as part of this study.

CNC Project Management, a leading member of the Australia Pipelines and Gas Association (APGA), will be undertaking the prefeasibility study.

Stakeholder engagement is yet to begin for the project or the prefeasibility study.

The department will ensure consultation and engagement on all stages is extensive, inclusive and thorough.
