Kalium Lakes Limited has been granted a licence to construct and operate a gas pipeline to the Beyondie Sulphate Of Potash project.
Kalium Lakes Limited has announced that it has received confirmation that the Department of Mines, Industry Regulation, and Safety (DMIRS), under delegation from the Minister for Mines and Petroleum (under section 10(1) of the Petroleum Pipelines Act 1969), has granted licence PL117 to construct and operate a pipeline for the conveyance of petroleum and for associated purposes along the authorised route to the 100% owned Beyondie Sulphate Of Potash Project (BSOPP) in the East Pilbara region of Western Australia.
The formal grant of a licence allows KLL, as part of the BSOPP Front End Engineering and Design (FEED) process, to continue to assess the option of constructing the pipeline for Stage 1 in place of trucked gas bullets.
Construction of the 78 km lateral gas pipeline, to connect to the Goldfields gas pipeline at a cost of AUS$29 million, would result in a reduction in operating cost of approximately AUS$31-34/t.
The gas pipeline forms part of the formal investment proposal that is being prepared for submission to the Australian Government’s Northern Australia Infrastructure Facility (NAIF).
Kalium Lakes Managing Director, Brett Hazelden, commented: “The grant of this licence confirms that we now have the flexibility to include the gas pipeline in the mix of construction variables, in order to optimise the best configuration of the processing plant.”
