Natural Gas from Coal Seams

Australians use natural gas every day – in our homes, businesses and communities. Natural gas from coal seams supplies over 35% of eastern Australia’s gas needs and is a safe and reliable energy source.

AGL’s Camden Gas Project, which has been safely operating since 2001, produces natural gas from coal seams, meeting approximately 5% of the gas needs of NSW.

For 180 years, AGL has gown with Australia, developing safe, sustainable and reliable energy from a range of sources. AGL has more than 1,400,000 business and residential gas customers and is confident of securing a cost-competitive gas supply for its customers. AGL is a long term contractor of gas and manages seasonal demand via its gas storage facilities.
