The pace and scale of transformation in the east Australian gas market over the past five years has put gas - both its availability and its pricing - firmly on the country's political agenda.
From 2028, our forecast indicates that there won't be adequate supply to meet both LNG contracts and domestic demand. More gas will need to be developed and commercialised, or LNG imported, to meet the needs of both markets.
We have released a NEW insight on the Australia east coast gas market outlook, which offers a comprehensive overview of the dynamics shaping the gas market, including the drivers of domestic gas demand, how gas flows will change and price dynamics.
Watch this pre-recorded webinar to understand some of the underlying research behind this report. Nicholas Browne, Director - Asian Gas and LNG Research and Chris Meredith, Senior Research Analyst - Australasian Upstream, answers the following questions:
- Is the Australia Energy Market Operator's (AEMO) gas demand outlook for the east coast a robust planning assumption?
- Is the east coast Australian market running short of gas?
- What is the opportunity for new domestic gas production to fill the gap?
- Can existing infrastructure cope with changing gas flows?
- Is there a role for LNG imports?
