“Queensland is importing less gas to the point where it is increasingly self-sufficient.
“Even with the LNG plants, it is importing only about 2 PJ per month, or 1.4 per cent of the east coast supply and there has been a net flow of gas south from Queensland since the first week of June, for the first time since November 2015.
“However, New South Wales, South Australia and Tasmania are increasingly reliant on gas imports from Queensland and offshore Victoria.
“NSW imports around 10 PJ per month and even South Australia nearly 4 PJ.
Although there has been an increase in domestic gas supplies, east coast prices remain globally uncompetitive.
