Tas Gas Networks
Tas Gas Networks is a natural gas distributor, delivering natural gas to homes and businesses in Tasmania. Their network makes gas available to approximately 46,500 of the state’s commercial and residential customers
Tas Gas Networks began work on the project in May 2003 with the commencement of the design process. The construction of the network was divided into two major stages. The first stage of the project, which was completed in July 2005, involved the laying of 100 km of gas pipe in the urban areas of Hobart, Launceston, Longford, Westbury, Bell Bay, Wynyard and Devonport. The second stage, which was completed in April 2007, involved laying a further 612 km of gas pipe across Hobart, Launceston, Burnie and Devonport.
Tas Gas Network’s primary focus is on owning and operating the gas network, with other parties becoming involved in the retailing of gas. To encourage competition in the market and the uptake of gas as an energy source, Tas Gas launched Tasmania’s first gas retailer, Tas Gas Retail
