Project Specifics for CSG Northern Water Treatment Plant

Treatment process

Most water is separated from gas at the wellhead before flowing through a network of gathering pipelines to storage ponds that are connected to QGC's treatment facilities.

QGC's two major water treatment plants will have a combined capacity to treat about 200 megalitres a day - or about 80 Olympic-sized swimming pools - during peak production. These facilities, in addition to one smaller plant, are located at each of the project's two major development areas.

The efficient reverse osmosis treatment process will convert almost 97% of produced water into treated water suitable for beneficial use.

Northern and central

Produced water collected from development area west of Wandoan will be transported by pipeline to our Northern Water Treatment Plant at Woleebee Creek. This plant will have a capacity of 100 megalitres a day.

Water produced near Miles and Dalby will be transported by pipeline to our Central Water Treatment Plant at our Kenya operational facility. This plant will have capacity to treat up to 92 megalitres a day.
