Due to strong interest from stakeholders, the department is extending consultations to run until 31 March 2021.

The Australian Government’s vision for a gas-fired recovery for Australia’s economy will be delivered through a number of measures across 3 key action areas:

  • unlocking supply
  • efficient transportation
  • empowering consumers

Our department is currently developing measures to address these key areas and would like to hear your views to inform their development.
For example:

  • The National Gas Infrastructure Plan (NGIP)
  • Establishing Wallumbilla as Australia’s Gas Hub

Why we are consulting

Your feedback will help us to:

  • understand issues that require consideration in developing measures
  • identify who we need to consult with on the detail of individual measures
