Multinet Gas project successfully commissioned

Work on the Lilydale Gas Pipeline included making changes to the Lilydale City Gate, which will reduce gas pressure from 6,890 KPa to 2,760 KPa to ensure the safe supply of gas to the downstream distribution network in August.

The new pipeline, owned by Multinet Gas, has been built to meet current and rapidly growing demand for natural gas in Lilydale, Chirnside Park, Croydon and locations across the Dandenong Ranges. The pipeline route required installation under the Yarra river, to overcome this barrier HDD was utilised.

The new 10 km transmission main will extend the Multinet Gas distribution network, which includes 9,800 km of pipelines and supplies natural gas to more than 660,000 residential, commercial and industrial customers.

Jemena was the construction contractor on the pipeline.
