The Hunter Gas Pipeline is a proposal to build an underground natural gas pipeline that will connect the gas hub at Wallumbilla (near Roma in Queensland) to Newcastle and the Sydney market. The pipeline would cover a distance of approximately 833km, with 611km in NSW including Singleton.
The project was approved by the NSW Government in 2009. A five-year extension was approved in October 2019 to commence construction by October 2024.
Singleton Council has no role in the approval or regulation of the project. However, Council is committed to supporting our community to advocate to the developer to ensure all views on the project are heard. Council is gathering as much as information about the project as possible both as a potentially impacted landholder and to provide to our community, subject to legal limitations.
