Northern Territory gas strategy

Vision: By 2030, the Territory is a world-class gas production, manufacturing and services hub.

Darwin is home to a globally significant liquefied natural gas (LNG) export hub. The Darwin LNG and Ichthys LNG projects supply over 10% of Japan’s annual global gas imports.

The Northern Territory (NT) has developed the local infrastructure and expertise required to support high calibre projects, including the US$37 billion INPEX-led Ichthys LNG Project, the US$5 billion ConocoPhillips-led Darwin LNG Project and the $800 million Jemena Northern Gas Pipeline.

The Territory Government is committed to achieving its vision for a world-class gas production, manufacturing and services through its five point plan to:

  • expand the world-scale Darwin LNG export hub.
  • grow the Northern Territory's service and supply industry.
  • establish gas-based processing and manufacturing.
  • grow research, innovation and training capacity.
  • contribute to Australia's energy security.
