Jemena reverses pipeline to enhance Victoria’s gas supply

Energy infrastructure company, Jemena, is planning to reverse the 797-kilometre Eastern Gas Pipeline (EGP) — potentially sending up to 300 TJ/d of gas south from New South Wales into Victoria. The EGP, commissioned in 2000, traditionally brought gas from Bass Strait to the New South Wales and Sydney market, supplying over 70 per cent of gas across New South Wales at times. The reversal project aims to make the EGP bi-directional, allowing it to deliver 200TJ/d south from Port Kembla Energy Terminal (PKET) — owned by Squadron Energy — by Winter 2026. With PKET over 90 per cent complete, it is Austr... more
