Matthew Groom, Minister for Energy

Gas transportation arrangements

The Government remains committed to securing the best possible gas transportation arrangements for Tasmania.

We continue to encourage all parties to negotiate in good faith and secure fair outcomes.

We stand in support of the major industrials on this issue and will continue to do everything we can in partnership with them to ensure Tasmania's interests are fully protected. The suggestion of major job losses is completely baseless.

Labor have no credibility on this issue. The reason our major industrials have been put in this position is because of contractual arrangements agreed to by the former Labor Government.
