The Tasmanian Gas Pipeline (TGP) directly supports close to $1 billion worth of economic output, over 4,200 direct Tasmanian jobs and over 8,500 jobs in total, confirming the significant contribution Tasmania’s only bulk supplier of natural gas makes to the state.
Commissioned in 2002, the Tasmanian Gas Pipeline (TGP) is the only pipeline supplying natural gas to Tasmania. It transports natural gas from Longford in Victoria, under Bass Strait, to Bell Bay in Tasmania.
The TGP is a part of a network of underground high-pressure gas pipes, which stretches over 20,000km and serves all of Australia’s states and territories.
The TGP brings jobs and economic growth to the communities it passes through and provides the opportunity for more than 500,000 Tasmanians to take advantage of the many benefits of natural gas.
