Pipelines

GPA have been designing and building pipeline and compressor projects across Australia for over 20 years.

GPA undertook its first major high pressure natural gas pipeline design project in 1998 and has since become a key contributor to Australia’s pipeline industry with several gas transfer projects spanning the county. We have delivered pipeline design engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) services on major pipelines, including:

  • The Northern Gas Pipeline
  • Palm Valley
  • Owen Springs Lateral
  • Pine Gap Lateral
  • Dingo Pipeline
  • SESA, Mortlake
  • SEA Gas
  • Moomba to Adelaide Pipeline System (MAPS).

GPA have broad experience in pipeline and facility design, simulation, construction management and commissioning. Our capabilities reach across CSG gathering networks, Gas Injection and Storage Facilities, two phase pipelines, liquid hydrocarbon pipelines, sulphuric acid and ammonia pipelines, CO2 and LPG pipelines, hydrogen pipelines, water and slurry pipelines, and liquor pipelines.

We are also an active member of the Australian Pipeline and Gas Association (APGA), as well as a contributor to the Energy Pipelines Cooperative Research Centre (EPCRC).

GPA engineers participate in and have served on the standards committee for AS2885, the APGA code of environmental impact committee, pipeline engineer training committee, SA Young Pipeliners Forum committee and pipeline composites reference group. These groups and committees ensure GPA remain at the forefront of research and knowledge for key issues facing our pipeline industry.
