Horizon awaits viability of Western Pipeline

According to Business Advantage PNG, Emmet said while Horizon awaits government and regulatory approval for their mid-sized Western LNG project, the company is considering the proposal by Kumul Petroleum Holdings Limited for the pipeline.

He said this during the Business Advantage PNG Investment Conference in Sydney, Australia, recently.

Horizon open to export gas to Aust

While a final investment decision is yet to be made on the Western Foreland Gas Fields commercialisation project to meet global LNG demands, Horizon has been approached to consider the Australian East coast market.

CEO Brent Emmet is reported to have told Energy News last month that he has been asked and he would consider the proposal.

While the plan was initially to service eastern Indonesia and the countries along the rim of the South China Sea, Emmett has since expanded the radar to potential LNG distribution points to northern and eastern Australia.
