Our gas distribution network

Our gas network covers western Melbourne and central and western Victoria. We work all year to maintain, upgrade and extend our network so we can continue supplying safe and reliable gas to our customers.

Major gas projects

We're focused on building a safe and reliable gas network for our customers year-round. One of the ways we do this, is by renewing older gas mains.

Over the last 12 months we have upgraded existing low-pressure gas mains in Western Victoria by replacing existing cast iron, PVC and galvanised low-pressure mains with high-pressure modern polyethylene pipes (poly pipes).

We prioritise regions in our network predicted to experience more cold snaps and consecutive cold days, areas with higher gas leakage rates which is an important safety concern, and those communities facing possible outages on the fringes of expanding networks.

We’re aiming to convert the whole of our Low-Pressure Mains network to High Pressure by 2028, which equates to upgrading 273.4km of mains within 5 years.
