Analysis released in September 2020 has shown the Tasmanian Gas
Pipeline (TGP) directly supports close to $1 billion worth of economic
output, over 4,200 direct Tasmanian jobs and over 8,500 jobs in total,
confirming the significant contribution Tasmania’s only bulk supplier of
natural gas makes to the state.
According to the Tasmanian Gas Pipeline Economic Analysis prepared by Deloitte Access Economics, the TGP also helps to ‘maintain and sustain’ Tasmania’s manufacturing sector by providing a reliable and competitive source of clean energy and adds to the state’s energy security by supplying the Tamar Valley Power Station.
The $970 million in value the pipeline adds to Tasmania’s economy is equivalent to three per cent of the state’s GSP and the 8,500 jobs it supports makes up 3.4 per cent of Tasmania’s total employment. To find out more view the Truth document.
