QLD: Dalby Distribution System

QLD: Dalby Distribution System

The Dalby Distribution System is a distribution network located in south-east Queensland. The network is owned and operated by Western Downs Regional Council (formerly Dalby Town Council). 

The Dalby Distribution System is 86 km in length and serves approximately 2,500 customers in the town of Dalby. The Dalby Distribution System’s throughput is 0.16 PJ/year. 
Dalby Distribution System is connected to the Roma to Brisbane Pipeline.

The Dalby Distribution System is currently a non-scheme pipeline, and is subject to the access regime for non-scheme pipelines under Chapter 6A of the NGL and Part 23 of the NGR.  On 13 December 2018, the AER granted a 5 year category 1, category 2 and category 3 exemption under Part 23 of the NGR for the Dalby Distribution System. In 2000, the Queensland Minister for Mines and Energy (being the relevant minister) revoked coverage of the Dalby distribution system under the Gas Code, as recommended by the National Competition Council (NCC).
