The Federal Government will introduce an "Australian Domestic Gas Security Mechanism", which is aimed at ensuring that domestic gas supply is sufficient to meet forecast demand. Resources Minister Matt Canavan will be given the power to block gas exports to ensure that gas users on the east coast have access to sufficient gas. Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull says the government aims to ensure that the domestic price of gas is affordable and reflects global export prices.
