Gas-fired recovery

Gas will help make energy affordable for families and businesses and support jobs as part of Australia’s recovery from the COVID-19 recession, said the Hon Angus Taylor MP, Minister for Energy and Emissions Reduction.

The Hon Scott Morrison MP, Prime Minister, said the government would reset the east coast gas market and create a more competitive and transparent Australian Gas Hub by unlocking gas supply, delivering an efficient pipeline and transportation market, and empowering gas customers.

‘We’ll work with industry to deliver a gas hub for Australia that will ensure households and businesses enjoy the benefits of our abundant local gas while we hold our position as one of the top global liquefied natural gas (LNG) exporters,’ the Prime Minister said.
