The AGN Queensland gas distribution network is owned by Australian Gas Networks (AGN – formerly known as Envestra Limited) who outsources the operation of the network to the APA Group.
The AGN Queensland gas distribution network covers separate areas in the Brisbane region (Brisbane CBD, north of the Brisbane River and Ipswich) and Northern Region (Rockhampton and Gladstone). In total, it consists of approximately 3,000 km of pipeline delivering gas to around 102,000 customers.
The network was initially subject to regulation as a covered pipeline under the Gas Code by the Queensland Competition Authority. It was then subject to full regulation by the Australian Energy Regulator (AER) under the National Gas Rules (NGR).
In November 2014, the National Competition Council (NCC) made a decision on the form of regulation for the Queensland gas distribution network. The AGN Queensland gas distribution network is now subject to light regulation by the AER under the NGL.
