The Silver Springs Pipeline (also known as SSP or the Silver Springs to Wallumbilla Pipeline) is a transmission pipeline located in south Queensland. The SSP is owned and operated by AGL.
The SSP is 101km in length and has a capacity of 9 TJ/day.
The SSP links AGL’s Silver Springs underground gas storage (UGS) facility with the Wallumbilla gas hub near Roma in Queensland.
AGL has contracted to store gas at the Silver Springs UGS facility for QGC Pty Limited (part of the BG Group) in support of QGC’s LNG development at Gladstone. The Silver Springs UGS facility also allows AGL to manage its gas supply during seasonal variations.
The SSP is currently a non-scheme pipeline, and is subject to the access regime for non-scheme pipelines under Chapter 6A of the NGL and Part 23 of the NGR. On 7 December 2017, the AER granted a 5 year category 1 and category 2 exemption under Part 23 of the NGR for the Silver Springs to Wallumbilla Pipeline.
The SSP was constructed in 1978.
