— Queens­land APPEA di­rec­tor Rhys Turner de­vel­op­ment and de­liver less sup­ply.”

Ori­gin’s APLNG site is self-suf­fi­cient, but San­tos GLNG and Shell’s QCLNG sites buy third party gas.

“(Glad­stone) should not be pun­ished be­cause other states refuse to de­velop their gas sup­ply,” Mr Turner said.

Min­is­ter for North­ern Aus­tralia, Sen­a­tor Matt Canavan said build­ing more coal or re­new­able power sta­tions could ease do­mes­tic gas mar­ket pres­sure.

He told The Aus­tralian news­pa­per, “We are try­ing to see if we could free up gas from pro­duc­ing elec­tric­ity to meet­ing other needs, where you can’t sub­sti­tute gas”.
