Camden Gas Project: Community

Community support fund - final round of funding

AGL’s Camden Gas Project has been in operation since 2001 and safely supplies around 5% of NSW’s gas needs.

In February 2016, AGL announced that it will progressively decommission wells and rehabilitate sites at the Camden Gas Project prior to stopping production in 2023.

Since commencement of operations in 2001, AGL has contributed more than $1 million to the wider region in community funding and natural disaster relief funds.

For FY24, AGL is seeking to make a final contribution in recognition of the community support for the Camden operations. The intention is to contribute to initiatives that will provide long term benefits for the community.

AGL is calling for applications for projects in the Local Government areas of Camden, Wollondilly and Campbelltown Councils.

Applications close on 30 June and can be made via the Application Form. Inquiries can be directed to

Community Consultative Committee (CCC) meetings

AGL works with an independently chaired Community Consultative Committee.

The Committee provides a forum of open discussion between AGL and the community on site operations. It acts as a channel to help AGL understand the community’s issues of interest and improve our communication, education and notification with the Macarthur community.

It comprises 13 members including four community representatives, two environment representatives, representatives from each of the councils, a representative from the EPA and three members from AGL’s project team.
