A TRAVELLER was
so impressed with a
BP worker’s brilliant
service, she wrote a
letter of praise to the
company’s head of-
Alayne Amanatidis and
her family pulled into Ten-
nant Creek late one night
After checking in to a
hotel, Alayne’s husband,
Yianggo, went looking
He purchased some of
Karen’s Kitchen’s famous
chicken pies but had to
choose more carefully for
his son who cannot eat
That’s when BP’s Matt
Gedge (pictured) decided
to help out by going an
extra mile, or two.
He offered to cook sau-
Traveller impressed with BP staffer’s service
sages for the hungry boy
so he could have a hot,
fresh meal. Alayne said
the gesture was a really big
deal for her son.
“He didn’t have to eat
Mum’s cold food from
home and could enjoy a
takeaway,” she wrote.
“As a mum, my heart
“Matt’s unsolicited ac-
tions show a perceptive
man, engaged with cus-
tomers, solution focussed,
willing to work collabora-
tively and think laterally to
achieve a goal.”
Alayne wrote that Matt’s
actions were sincerely ap-
preciated and he had made
a big difference.
ONE of the four tenderers bidding for the
construction rights to the North East Gas In-
terconnector (NEGI), Jemena, was in Tennant
Creek on Wednesday to explain the project
and raise its profile in the run-up to the con-
tract being awarded.
Three other companies vying for this lucrative en-
deavour are APA, DUET and Merlin, with a timeline
of August to early September for documentation to
be submitted to Government prior to the tender award
Jemena is the owner-operator of the tender bid,
however construction company McConnell Dowell
would build the pipeline and Circleadvisory, EcoOz
and Maloney Field Services are on board to assist with
organising and planning local and indigenous partici-
pation, environmental and heritage concerns and land
Community Relations Advisor for Jemena, Rob Ma-
gennis, was manning the public information stall at the
Foodbarn this week.
“Jemena has done a lot of planning already on the
NEGI but that will be ramped up to full scale once the
tender process is finalised,” Mr Magennis said.
“It is estimated that it would take about 18 months to
complete and employ about 100 workers for the dura-
tion of the construction phase.
“The pipeline would be built from Mt Isa to Tennant
Creek but there would be camps all along the route and
a compressor station would need to be built early on in
the construction phase, at the junction of the NEGI and
the Amadeus pipeline, just north of Tennant Creek.”
It is envisaged that the compressor station would take
around 12 months to construct, would source some
materials locally and there would be employment op-
portunities for local workers.
IN THE RUNNING: Vivienne Brown talks to
Jemena’s Rob Magennis about the NEGI.
