Gas Price Trends Review 2017

Post date: Monday, 29th January 2018

On 29 January 2018 the Gas Price Trends Review 2017 and accompanying data was published, and is available on the energy.gov.au web site.

The opaque nature of Australia’s wholesale natural gas markets and the deregulation of natural gas retail markets in most states and territories mean there is limited information in the public domain about the gas prices paid by industrial and residential customers.

In 2017, the Gas Major Projects Implementation Team, a COAG Energy Council officials group, commissioned Oakley Greenwood to review gas price trends over 2016-17. The report is intended to help fill this information gap and inform market participants, consumers and policy development.
