Milking with gas

Metgasco has entered into an agreement with Richmond Dairies for the sale of its first gas from the Casino gas project.

The 10-year agreement will begin in 2012 to supply natural gas for energy.

The gas supply infrastructure is expected to tie into the development of Metgasco's Richmond Valley Power Station project which has development approval from the NSW Government. Additional approvals will be required to install gas supply infrastructure to Richmond Dairies facilities. The gas sale agreement is subject to these approvals being received.

Metgasco's CEO Peter Henderson said, "We look forward to supplying gas to our first gas customer. The supply of local gas to local customers demonstrates our strategy in action and the very real benefits of the development of a regional gas industry in NSW... It also demonstrates how the agricultural and energy industries can work co-operatively together for the benefit of the wider community."
