Annual Report to Shareholders
The existence of conventional gas at Reid's Dome alongside the CSG should enable State Gas to better meet the increasingly volatile demand profile of the Eastern Seaboard gas market. This demand-volatility is being caused by the increasing use of gas for intermediate/peak power as the need for dispatchable electricity increases to offset the intermittency inherent in renewable electricity. Nothing beats optionality in times of volatility.
The Federal Government's recently announced energy policy highlights the key role natural gas will play in the post COVID-19 recovery phase for the national economy. It is the company's intention that State Gas will play its role in this national objective. Commissioning the production facilities in late 2022, and selling gas in 2023 - the very year in which a critical shortage is forecast to eventuate.
