Evol LNG to power Western Australia gold mine

Wesfarmers’ Evol LNG has won a long-term contract to supply chilled fuel to Ora Banda Mining’s Dayhurst gold mine in Western Australia.

The gold mine, located in WA’s North-West Goldfields region, is restarting production in January 2021 following a three-year long maintenance.

Under the contract, Evol LNG will build, own, and maintain the on-site LNG storage and vaporisation facility at the mine.

Furthermore, the facility will incorporate Evol’s modular design. This allows for further expansion if the mine’s energy requirements increase in the future, the LNG supplier said.

Evol will load the LNG onto trucks at Kleenheat’s Kwinana production facility south of Perth and deliver the fuel to Dayhurst.

From there, the mine will use LNG to fuel a 7.5 MW gas-fired power station, with supply planned to start from December 2020.

Ora Banda expects using LNG instead of diesel would reduce CO2 emissions by about 25,000 tonnes during the initial five years of operation.
