A report from the Australian Energy Market Operator forecasts that Victoria’s gas production will fall to 187 petajoules in 2022, compared with 435 petajoules in 2017. Damien Sanford of AEMO has warned that Victoria faces a gas supply shortfall from 2022 unless new sources of gas are found. The Bass Strait gas fields are rapidly being depleted, and AEMO says Victorians could face the prospect of having to restrict gas consumption on days of peak demand from 2022.
