MELBOURNE, Aug. 14 -- Arrow Energy Ltd., Brisbane, has filed for environmental approval from the Queensland government to build a 467-km high-pressure coalseam methane pipeline from fields in the Surat basin to the proposed site of an LNG plant at Fisherman’s Landing in Gladstone.

Arrow says construction of the 660-mm line is expected to begin in 2011 and take about 16 months to complete.

The LNG plant is to be operated by Liquefied Natural Gas Ltd., Perth. The plant is expected to process its first gas in early 2013.

Arrow will own the line, which will be managed and operated by a third party.

Final investment decision for the Fisherman’s Landing LNG project is expected by March 2010.
