McConnell Dowell has been engaged by APA to construct the Lake Way Gas Pipeline (LWP) project, located 15 kilometres south of Wiluna in Western Australia.

The pipeline will transport natural gas from APA’s Goldfields Gas Pipeline (GGP) to SO4’s Lake Way facility for the purposes of fuelling gas-fired power generating facilities and providing gas for equipment within the process plant.

McConnell Dowell’s work scope consists of a 26-kilometre DN100 high pressure gas pipeline, which will be installed in an easement running westwards from the GGP.

McConnell Dowell has also been engaged by APA to construct the Karlawinda Gas Pipeline (KGP) project, located 60 kilometres south of Newman in Western Australia.

The pipeline will transport natural gas from APA’s Goldfields Gas Pipeline (GGP) to the Karlawinda Gold Project for the purposes of fuelling gas fired power generating facilities and providing gas to the Capricorn Metals owned gold mine.

McConnell Dowell’s work scope consists of a 56-kilometres DN100 high pressure gas pipeline, which will be installed in an easement running eastwards from the GGP.

Both of these projects will commence immediately and follows on from the 13-kilometre DN300 Murrin Murrin Looping Pipeline secured in September 2020, also in support of APA.

Since 1997, when awarded the original Murrin Murrin Gas Pipeline, McConnell Dowell has been awarded in excess of 1,100 kilometres of gas transmission pipelines in Western Australia. This demonstrates the company’s strength and capability as a major pipeline contractor in Western Australia.
