Talinga Pond C

Location: Chinchilla, Queensland
Client: Origin Energy
Status: Completed September, 2015
Value: $14 Million
Capability: Civil Engineering
Sector: Energy and resources
Service: Construct Only

The FKG Group was appointed to complete the construction of a new 560 megalitre pond, involving expansion of the current brine storage capacity to deal with increases in the associated water by-product of the CSG activities.

The Talinga Pond C project involved linking a dedicated Interpond Transfer (IPT) system, to the Talinga Pond B and the Talinga Water Treatment Facility.

Working in an existing gas field presented construction challenges. The brine pond was a greenfield site and a heavy level of compliance was required with bulk earthwork activities to meet environmental, quality and safety regulations.
