Australian Industrial Energy (AIE) is developing NSW’s first liquefied natural gas (LNG) import terminal at Port Kembla near Wollongong.

The Port Kembla Gas Terminal will deliver a new source of natural gas to the market to meet predicted supply shortfalls and could supply more than 75% of NSW’s gas needs.

It is estimated the Project will create around 130 – 150 jobs during construction and between 40 – 50 ongoing roles.

The NSW Government granted Development Consent for the Project in April 2019 and a Modification to the original Development Consent was approved in April 2020.

The Modification will allow the Project greater operational flexibility and the ability to better satisfy the market’s need for more gas volumes during cooler months.

The Federal Government has identified a secure, affordable supply of natural gas as a key component of Australia’s post-COVID-19 economic recovery.

The PKGT is the project best placed to deliver substantial quantities of gas into the east coast gas market in the timeframe required to support this recovery.

AIE has awarded the construction contract for the Port Kembla Gas Terminal and associated pipeline to Spiecapag Soletanche Bachy (SCSB).

A local participation plan was a key part of the construction contract tender process and SCSB will be engaging all contractors for the construction phase.
