Northern Gas Pipeline

Jemena-TCk-14.jpgNT Gas Market Development

Jemena is proud to have commissioned the Northern Gas Pipeline (NGP) in 2019 with first commercial operations commencing on 3 January 2019.

To encourage growth in the Northern Territory gas market Jemena decided to offer ‘as available services’ on the NGP for the same tariff as ‘firm services’ for 2019 only.

‘As available services’ do not require a take or pay commitment but service is not guaranteed to be available until scheduled.  ‘As available’ tariffs have reverted to established levels from 2020. 

If you have any questions please contact Nerise Cook , Commercial Manager (NGP & Queensland Pipelines) on 0417 810 619  or
