Eastern Gas Pipeline
The Eastern Gas Pipeline is a key supply artery between the Gippsland Basin in Victoria and NSW. The pipeline supplies more than half the gas consumed in NSW and is ideally located to meet the growing demand for natural gas in NSW from residential, industrial and commercial customers.
The pipeline also transports natural gas to demand centres in Sydney, Canberra and Wollongong as well as a number of regional centres including Bairnsdale, Cooma, Nowra and Bomaderry.
The Eastern Gas Pipeline is well placed to accommodate future expansion projects to meet new demand.
