Maranoa Regional Council operates a reticulated natural gas network in the town of Roma, with the gas mains spanning over 26 km.
Roma has a long association with natural gas following the discovery of gas while drilling for water on Hospital Hill in 1900. The gas was used to light street lamps throughout the town for 10 days before the supply ran out. Australia’s first commercial gas project was the connection of the old Roma Power Station to local natural gas supplies.
While gas exploration and projects have evolved significantly since this time, the Maranoa region is still a significant contributor to Queensland’s natural gas industry.
Maranoa Regional Council is able to supply natural gas to residents and businesses in Roma, if located near the current gas network. For more information click here.
