Longford Gas Conditioning Plant

Esso Australia is in the final stages of startup of a Gas Conditioning Plant at its existing Longford facilities near Sale in south-eastern Victoria. It is being constructed on private land already occupied by the company, zoned for industrial use and adjacent to the existing Longford facilities.

The Gas Conditioning Plant will process gas associated with the largest domestic gas development on Australia’s eastern seaboard, the multi-billion dollar Kipper Tuna Turrum (KTT) Project. 

It is an important project for the Gippsland region in particular, as construction and fabrication of the plant has generated more than 800 jobs, with 90 percent of the workforce from the region.

Esso has a strong record of supporting local contractors and suppliers and has utilised local expertise in helping to deliver the project, with local Gippsland suppliers providing millions of dollars' worth of goods and services.

In addition to the direct economic benefits, the Gas Conditioning Plant will help to underpin east Australia’s energy future ensuring a supply of cleaner burning natural gas for future generations.

The Gas Conditioning Plant has been designed in an environmentally responsible manner in accordance with applicable Acts, Regulations and Policies, as well as company global best practices.

Construction on the Gas Conditioning Plant began in December 2013 and the facility is in the final stages of startup.
