AGL awarded Eastern Gas Pipeline transportation agreement

AGL Energy has entered into a gas transportation agreement with Jemena Eastern Gas Pipeline to purchase pipeline capacity on the 797 km Eastern Gas Pipeline over 15 years from 2016.

The gas transportation agreement helps underpin the midline compression capacity expansion of the pipeline and will enable AGL to secure competitive foundation haulage tariffs to New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory.

The deal, together with existing contracted pipeline capacities, together with a supply purchasing agreement in the Bass Strait and the development of the Gloucester Gas Project, aims to support AGL’s supply arrangements for customers in the NSW and ACT well into the next decade.

The 797 km, DN 450 diameter Eastern Gas Pipeline transports natural gas from the Gippsland Basin in Victoria to demand hubs in Sydney, Canberra and Wollongong as well as a number of regional centres including Bairnsdale, Cooma, Nowra and Bomaderry.
