LNG vs Pipeline Gas – The Battle for Australia’s East-Coast Market

Sanira Tennakoon, Senior Consultant – AME Group

Talk Summary:
Australia’s natural gas sector is geographically disparate, where the largest reserves and the largest consumption centres are separated by a 4,000km wide, mainly arid interior, with no interconnecting pipelines. In the East, the issue of domestic gas supply has resurfaced due to high gas demand for foreign markets via LNG producers in Gladstone. To contrast, Western Australia is unlikely to fall short, with current operations expected to provide surplus production until at least 2022.

A West–East Pipeline represents a technically feasible option for increasing gas supply; However, LNG producers such as Chevron and Woodside may prefer to find their own avenues towards securing new markets in Australia’s main east-coast market.
