Mapping Australia’s gas regulations to enable a future hydrogen and biomethane industry


Building on efforts completed as part of the National Hydrogen Strategy, a new report has detailed exactly how Australia’s current gas regulations can be modernised to facilitate the future use of hydrogen, biomethane and other potential future fuels.

Developed by Future Fuels CRC, the document creates a comprehensive regulatory map of relevant legislation across the natural gas production and supply chain which may be impacted by the addition of future fuels such as hydrogen and biomethane.

Focusing on what moves need to be made in order to achieve Australia’s full potential, the report identifies the existing Australian legislation, including acts and policies, that may restrict or prevent the introduction of future fuels.

The regulatory review includes relevant Acts and their associated regulations and standards across all aspects of the supply chain (extraction, manufacturing, storage, transmission, distribution and use) relevant to the introduction of future fuels into existing gas infrastructure.
