Project Description

Liquified Natural Gas Refuelling Stations

In 2008/09, JMG worked with LNG Refuellers Pty Ltd to develop a state – wide network of LNG refuelling stations supplied from a central LNG plant at Westbury.

The LNG network will provide solely for the LNG Refuellers consortium. However, the move towards LNG refuelling will provide benefits to Tasmania as a whole in terms of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and reduced dependence upon foreign oil.

The refuelling stations operate unmanned and include:
– 80,000 litre storage tank, with a height of 15m and 3.3m diameter,
– Pump skid and security fence,
– Control building
– Two bowsers for concurrent refuelling
– 4.5m x 15m concrete infrastructure pad

The liquified natural gas is stored in an insulated tank at -165 degrees Celsius

JMG contributed Planning, Civil, Structural and Electrical Engineering expertise to the project.
