AGL’s Camden Gas Project supports the local community through employing people and business from the region. More than 70 percent of the Camden Gas Project team are from the Macarthur region, and around 40 percent of its suppliers and contractors are locally-based businesses.
The Rosalind Park Gas Plant is the central element of the Camden Gas Project, where natural gas is collected via low pressure underground gathering lines, processed and transmitted into the natural gas network, ready for use by households and businesses.
The Camden Gas Project is located in the Macarthur region of New South Wales, around 65 kilometres south-west of Sydney and operates within the Camden, Campbelltown and Wollondilly local government areas.
From 2001, Sydney Gas Limited developed the Camden Gas Project and received approval for the first two Petroleum Production Licences (PPLs) in New South Wales.
Further appraisal led to the addition of three production wells in 2002 under PPL 2. Operation of the Rosalind Park Gas Plant commenced under PPL 4 in 2004 and the Project expanded to include PPLs 5 and 6.
In 2009, AGL acquired Sydney Gas Limited.
AGL is currently operating under PPLs 1, 2, 4, 5, 6 and has 100 percent ownership and operations of the Project.
No new wells have been drilled as part of the Project since September 2012.
AGL relinquished Petroleum Exploration Licence (PEL) 2 in July 2015 as part of the Upstream Gas Review and announced the Camden North Expansion Project would no longer proceed.

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