Major gas projects

Our gas distribution network includes over 11,000km of pipelines covering 60,000 square kilometres. It carries gas to around 760,000 customers across western and central Victoria.

We work all year to maintain, upgrade and extend our network so we can continue supplying safe and reliable gas to our customers.
