Natural gas provides an affordable, clean energy solution that will assist in the transition to a carbon-constrained environment. Gas is an essential energy source for the industrial and manufacturing sectors in Queensland and is increasingly used in electricity generation. Now and in years to come, the gas industry will play a significant role in Queensland’s continued strong economic and regional development while reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Gas Transmission and Distribution refers to the supply of natural gas via transmission and distribution pipelines and Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG) via cylinders to domestic, commercial and industrial customers. It does not refer to the extraction of gas from its source, nor the installation or maintenance of gas appliances within domestic or manufacturing environments.
