NORTHERN Rivers gas company Metgasco has struck a deal with developers of the Pacific Inter-modal and Logistics Industrial Park in Casino, to supply the proposed estate with what Metgasco describes as "natural gas".

Metgasco managing director Peter Henderson said the site could use 3-4 terrajoules a day or more than one petajoule per annum.

"Metgasco already has a gas sales agreement with Richmond Dairies and hopes it can facilitate new business in the area through pipeline supplies to other businesses in Casino and compressed natural gas (CNG) supplies to businesses within a 200km radius of Casino," he said.

The Pacific Intermodal and Logistics Industrial Park project is planning to offer manufacturers the largest industrial centre for the Northern Rivers Region with a central freight and logistics hub.

Strategically, with the Pacific Intermodal and Logistics Industrial Park in Casino, it is central to the region's 300,000-strong population and has the potential to become the headquarters to many commercial and industrial development activities and link to national and international markets through road, rail, sea and air capabilities.
