SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 22 2018 NEWS 11 V1 - NTNE01Z01MA SANTOS has become the latest to sign a gas transport agreement to use the Northern Gas Pipeline. Santos will ship around eight terajoules of gas per day across the $800 million Tennant Creek to Mount Isa pipeline. The gas will be used to provide energy for local mining and mineral processing opera tions in the Mount Isa region. Jemena, which owns the NGP, said the new agreement means about 80 per cent of the pipelines total available capacity in its first year of operation has now been contracted. Executive general manager of Jemenas corporate development, Antoon Boey, said the new contract reinforced the Territorys growing gas credentials. Todays announcement proves strategic investment decisions like the NGP can help to mitigate forecast gas shortages while bolstering local industry and strengthening the Northern Territorys growing gas credentials, he said. Mr Boey said the new agreement would see Jemena transport gas for three years from the first day of commercial pipeline operations for Santos. Santos managing director and chief executive Kevin Gallagher said the transportation agreement was critical in connecting the Territorys gas supply to the main grid. This is a great commercial outcome for all the parties involved and it is also good for the east coast domestic gas market, connecting the NT into this supply grid, Mr Gallagher said. Its absolutely critical that we continue to open up new gas supply sources to service the domestic market as existing, mature fields decline. Jemena said the construction of the NGP was on schedule with first gas set to flow this year. The agreement provides much-needed gas to the mining and processing sector in the Mount Isa area and is a positive for the local community, who will benefit not only from jobs which rely on gas but from the flow-on effects of having a vibrant local economy, Mr Boey said.

Taking place at the Ray White Darwin auction room on September 27, 29 residential and six commercial properties will go under the hammer. Ray White Darwin sales consultant Nick Mousellis said it was very rare to have an offering of this size and magnitude come on to the market. Were certainly expecting a large crowd to attend the auction, especially first-home buyers who are looking to get into the property market, he said. Weve also been receiving lots of inquiries from potential investors and business owners as there are a number of commercial properties available to purchase. The 35 properties are all currently owned by Darwin developer Andrew Milatos. The time has come to move interstate to focus on new projects and this is without a doubt a fantastic opportunity that I hope people will take advantage of, he said. For first-time buyers and investors, these properties are priced at affordable levels and offer real quality with the potential of high rental yields. Registrations for the auction at 22 Stuart Highway open at 6pm, with the auction set to kick off at 6.30pm.
