WA’s largest gas storage facility to be built

Duet Group subsidiary DBP Development Group (DDG) is constructing what the company calls the largest gas storage facility in Western Australia.

The project will use the depleted Tubridgi onshore gas reservoir, located around 30km from Onslow in northwest WA. This is also in close proximity to Chevron’s Wheatstone and BHP-operated domestic gas facilities.

The facility has a total construction cost of $69 million and will have a storage capacity of around 42 petajoules (PJ).

DUET CEO David Bartholomew said DDG had a strong track record in developing gas infrastructure in WA.

“The location and size of the Tubridgi gas storage facility is expected to enhance the security of natural gas supplies in the state and provide an attractive growth opportunity for DUET,” he said.

The site is expected to be operational in June next year.
