How the gas market works in Australia

Natural gas accounts for around half of the energy used to power households in Australia. Gas in Australia is sourced from onshore and offshore sources and is not considered to be a source of renewable energy. Gas produced in Australia is exported to countries around the world and 37% of the gas used in Australia is used for electricity generation.

There are three gas regions in Australia:

  • The East Coast Region includes Queensland, Victoria, New South Wales, South Australia, Tasmania and the Australian Capital Territory.
  • The Western Region includes Western Australia.
  • The Northern Region includes the Northern Territory.

What is natural gas?

Natural gas is generated from organic matter that was initially plants or animals that had been buried. Through heat and pressure forces over hundreds of millions of years, these organic chemicals were compressed to form inorganic fuels. This is where the name "fossil fuel" comes from, it's literally a type of fossil.

About half of Australian homes rely on natural gas as a source of energy. These are predominantly in Victoria, New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory. The gas we use mostly consists of methane, which is colourless and odourless. If you've ever smelled gas in your home, that smell is actually added to make it easier to detect.

Natural gas releases about half of the carbon that burning coal releases. However, it isn't as good for the environment as solar, wind or hydroelectric. If the environment is your number one concern, check out our comprehensive guide to going solar.

Gas options by state

Whether or not you have a choice in your gas retailer depends on where you live. For more information on energy options where you live, click on your state:

How to request a gas connection in 5 steps

If your home isn't already connected to a natural gas pipeline, you can request a connection through your chosen gas supplier. Keep in mind, installation can be costly and might not be possible if your property isn't within range of a gas main.

  1. Check if gas is available for your home by asking your energy retailer. If it is, you can lodge a new connection request.
  2. Your gas provider will arrange to connect your home to the pipeline.
  3. Buy gas appliances and have them installed and connected to your new gas system.
  4. Arrange to have a gas meter installed through your retailer.

How to compare gas providers

There are many things to consider when selecting a new gas provider and plan, including charges, discounts and fees. The better informed you are, the better equipped you'll be when it comes to choosing the best plan for you.

How to switch gas providers

Compare gas providers in your state to find a plan and a price that works for you. Next, transfer your gas from your existing company to your new company. This can usually be done online in a matter of minutes.

The gas will still be supplied to your home exactly the same, so there will be no down period or need for re-installation or anything else. All that happens is your account is transferred from one company to another.

Once you've compared providers, checked out the prices and picked the plan that offers what you want, you can switch to your new energy provider.

How to switch energy providers

What do I need to switch?

You'll need a few bits of basic information in order to get an accurate quote. Make sure you have the following:
  • Your postcode or suburb
  • Details of your current provider
  • A copy of your latest bill

It's worth having a few old bills on hand so you can get a full understanding of how you use your gas supply at different times during the year.

    Why is Western Australia not on the compare lists?

      Hi Cody,

      Thanks for your inquiry.

      You can find the available providers in Western Australia on this review page. If you like to discuss your options with your chosen provider, please contact them directly.

      Cheers,

    We have bottled gas. Is there a comparison for this? Including any fees.

      Hi Lee,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      Unfortunately, we don’t have a comparison for LPG (bottled gas). What we do have is a comparison for suppliers that offer natural gas which is listed above. You might like to get in touch with the providers that offer LPG directly.

      Hope this helps.

      Best regards,
      Rench

    How does Kleenheat compare with Alinta for gas supply in Perth?
    Is there any reason you make no mention of Kleenheat in your info.

    • Avatarfinder Customer Care
      ShirleyAugust 5, 2016Staff

      Hi Jo,

      Thank you for letting us know about Kleenheat!

      We will write something up and will update you once it’s up. However, if you would like to directly compare Kleenheat and Alinta, we recommend that you get in touch with a energy consultant.

      Hi Ailsa,

      Thanks for getting in touch. Unfortunately, we’re a comparison website and not Alinta Energy. To investigate how to pay your account online, you can contact a member of the Alinta team on their website. Many thanks and good luck.

      Jess,
