EPA Statement on AGL Review of Gas Assets

Media release: 4 February 2016

Today, AGL announced it will not proceed with the Gloucester Gas Project and that it will cease production at the Camden Gas Project in South West Sydney in 2023.

The NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA) will play a vital role in ensuring that the decommissioning of the Gloucester Gas Project meets all relevant legal requirements including strict environmental rehabilitation standards. 

As the lead regulator for Gas activities in NSW, the EPA will continue to oversee production at the Camden Gas Project in South-West Sydney until the project’s completion. Once production has come to an end, the EPA will also oversee AGL’s environmental rehabilitation of the site.
