Evol LNG to power Aurenne’s gold mine in Western Australia

Wesfarmers’ Evol LNG has secured a long-term contract to supply liquefied natural gas to Aurenne’s Mt Ida gold mine in Western Australia.

According to a statement by Evol LNG, the Australian firm will supply about 10,000 tonnes of LNG per year to the gold mine.

Aurenne’s gold project is located 105 kilometers northeast of Menzies in Western Australia and the firm has constructed a new 1.2 Mtpa processing plant and a 12 MW gas-fired power station at the site.

Evol LNG said it will load LNG in intermodal ISO tank containers at Kleenheat’s 250-tonne per day Kwinana production facility south of Perth.

The tanks will be railed between Kwinana and Kalgoorlie, and then hauled by triple road trains on the last leg of the journey to Mt Ida’s power station.

Also, Evol LNG has commissioned the on-site LNG storage and vaporization facility at the mine, which it will own, operate, and maintain.

The facility uses Evol LNG’s modular design which allows for fast installation and scalability if the mine’s energy requirements change in the future, it said.

Evol LNG manager Josh Phillips said in the statement the use of LNG as an alternative to diesel would help minimize the mine’s power station emissions.

“Aurenne will avoid over 8,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions per year by fueling their power station with LNG instead of diesel,” he said.
