Project Type: Gas Pipeline
Client: Australian Pipeline Trust (APA)
Value: AU$50 Million
Lucas constructed a 57 kilometre gas pipeline, between the Brooklyn Compressor Station, west of Melbourne, and Lara, on the outskirts of Geelong. The pipeline adds storage capacity to accommodate the increased gas flows expected from the South West Victorian gas fields.
In addition to a number of complex water, road and rail crossings requiring effective landowner management, Lucas successfully met stringent environmental requirements to protect the habitat of an endangered frog species.
