Natural Gas Supporting Clean Energy in Queensland
A new supply agreement from natural gas company, Senex Energy, will be boosting domestic supply in Queensland.
The one-year agreement will see natural gas from Senex’s Project Atlas go to CleanCo, the Queensland Government’s clean energy company. CleanCo will play a substantial part in reaching Queensland’s 50% renewable energy target by 2030.
The gas from Senex will be used to generate electricity by supplying CleanCo’s Swanbank E gas-fired power station near Ipswich. Swanbank E uses combined cycle technology, allowing waste heat from the gas turbine to be used to generate additional electricity via a second turbine at no extra fuel cost.
Efficiency, coupled with the fact that natural gas is already a low emission fuel, means cleaner, more reliable energy for Queensland.
Senex has announced its ground-breaking Project Atlas is to supply even more #naturalgas to the domestic market. We're proud to be helping power homes and businesses by increasing supplies to @CleancoQ. More here: https://t.co/tvYvLPvjZp #qldpol #auspol #asx @APPEALtd @QRCouncil pic.twitter.com/rFiCEjVWbq
