Giving small energy providers a voice in WA
The Tanami Pipeline route runs for 440km from Alice Springs to the Tanami Mine and will allow conversion of the mines power generation from diesel to gas which provides a more reliable and environmentally friendly energy supply.
To meet construction deadlines, AGIG needed help to gain a significant number of approvals from the Northern Territory and Federal Governments and native title owners.
Cannings Purple was challenged with driving the approval processes to meet the strict timeframe. AGIG faced heavy penalties for project delays and therefore required Cannings Purple’s assistance to minimise this exposure.
Cannings Purple used our understanding of regulatory processes and government policy priorities, existing and new relationships and project management skills to assist AGIG to gain the necessary approvals in a timely manner.
AGIG’s deadline was tight, and each of day delay risked incurring a significant penalty. We led a delegation of AGIG representatives to meet with key Federal and Northern Territory Government officials and Ministers. With a detailed understanding of the project and the benefits it would bring, we were able to highlight the value of the pipeline for the mine and for the future gas needs of the region along with the jobs that would be created. Through active consultation, we were able to get key stakeholders on board with the project.
AGIG completed the construction phase of the project and the Tanami Mine now has gas.
All approvals were received in a timely way reducing risk for AGIG
