The Gas Crisis in NSW
It is absurd that the second-largest exporter of natural gas on the planet needs to import natural gas from other nations. Despite spending about $200 billion over the last decade to become an exporter of gas for energy-hungry Asian economies, Australian governments have neglected the needs of its own citizens. This would be similar to Saudi Arabia needing to shop around for oil.
Since 2016, three brand new export plants have been set up in Australia. This has put a major drain on market supply and caused wholesale prices for gas to nearly triple. The alarms bells went off across Australia as the energy market regulatory body, the AEMO, came out at the end of 2017 with a stunning report saying that the nation is fast approaching a shortage in gas. It was only after government pressure on local plants to ramp up production that the AEMO revised its forecast. Many analysts do not see the crisis averted for long, with demand expected to eclipse supply of gas in a few years.

What’s causing this crisis in NSW?
The shortage in gas is sparking from falling output in Australia’s current gas reserves as well as a temptation to profit from record-high prices in the Asian natural gas market. As various export plants come online later this year, Australia is expected to overtake Qatar as the number one exporter of gas in the planet.
Australians crushed under enormous gas bills are asking the simple questions the state and federal governments are unable to answer. Firstly, why isn’t gas being sent for exports not being redirected for the need of Australians? Second, why have state governments blocked many gas developments and caused supply to shrink? The desires of a few it seems, have unfortunately overshadowed the needs of the many.
For people in NSW, the inability of the state government to approve a gas plant at Narrabri had been questioned by ex-PM Malcolm Turnbull when he was in power. The Narrabri plant has been on the receiving end of a lot of flack from environmentalists as well as farmers concerned over the water-intensive practice of fracking. For a state constantly hounded by drought conditions, water is worth its weight in gold. Environmentalists also say that fracking can destabilise the Earth’s crust and cause tremors.
Fracking is seeing a ban in Victoria and the Northern Territory. Chemicals used in the process of fracking are banned in NSW, along with coal seam gas (CSG) exploration around houses or farms as it extracts volatile methane from coal beds. The federal government’s ex-Energy Minister Josh Frydenburg has said that fracking output from the Northern Territory itself will supply enough gas to cover any shortfall. Frydenburg has also come out saying that Australians are “starting to pay the price of the states’ gas development bans”.
What lies ahead for average, hard-working Australians?
Increasing gas bills will squeeze the amount of income Australians have at their disposal. At least four gas import projects are waiting for construction in Australia. One of these import terminals is planned in Port Kembla in NSW and is expected to cover about 75% of gas demand in the region. The fact, however, is that there is plenty of gas currently pumping out of Australia to cover any shortfalls in demand, but they are locked up in long-running export contracts. These contracts have led to the situation where in order to cover costs, suppliers have reduced domestic supplies to push up the local gas prices and cover export costs they face. These actions eventually led to a funny situation in the middle of 2016 where Australian gas exported to Japan was 40% cheaper than the gas prices Australians had to pay.
The good news for NSW, however, is that there are gas projects in the pipeline for the Sydney and Clarence-Moreton basins. The worrying state of affairs is that these projects may take years before they’re effective. For thousands of Australians that are facing energy poverty, that’s just too long to wait. An early-2018 study by thinktank Wood Mackenzie anticipated a 30% jump in gas prices in the Australian East Coast over the next five years.
Ultimately what the average Australian consumer would benefit from is improved reliability of supply and stable policies regarding gas importing and exporting. A McKinsey report says that NSW will require close to 130 petajoules (123 billion cubic feet) of natural gas by 2030. Stop-gap solutions need to ignored, for more forward-thinking solutions aiming at ramping up supply in the nation. Initiatives such as a country-wide pipeline that envisions getting low-cost gas supply to high demand states is one such welcome proposal. That idea, however, is still in the study stage and Australians currently, seem to have been deserted by their governments.

What is a gas usage charge?
A gas usage charge is a rate charged by how much gas is used in your property. The more the usage in your property is, the more your property has to pay. We know that a large chunk of your gas spend goes on these charges and that is why we focus on getting you sharper rates on them.
What is a gas supply charge?
A gas supply charge refers to a fixed rate charged on a daily basis for remaining on a gas supply network. The decision regarding setting gas supply charges rests on the gas retailers and thus is widely different.
What is a gas tariff?
Gas tariffs relate to how much you are paying for each unit of energy used. Unlike energy rates, gas tariffs are not subject to time of use charges, i.e., you are charged the same rate regardless of what time of the day you utilise it. If usage increases beyond a certain threshold, however, prices may increase. By seasonality as well, charges may change.
What is a pay on time discount?
Most discounts provided by gas retailers relate to you making a timely payment before it becomes overdue. As a reward for your promptness almost, you shall receive a sweet discount on your gas bill.
What is a direct debit discount?
What is a discount benefit period?
The discount benefit period relates to how long discounts remain in effect. Typically, most discounts have a date of expiration. For homes and businesses, it is vital to stay on top of when the period ends to avoid any nasty surprises. If you see your period is fast expiring, then call Electricity Monster, and we shall get you on a new plan with sharp discounts!
What if I can't pay my gas bill?
Tough times happen, but it is an emergency state when there are families and employees involved. Energy poverty is faced in a lot of Australian homes. If more Australians took the initiative to compare gas rates, they could be on more affordable rates.
We can help you compare retailers keeping your budgetary needs in mind. We care about the welfare of Australians, so talk to us and listen to our solutions.
What is Bill Smoothing?
Bill smoothing refers to a plan of payment where you make multiple smaller payments more frequently, rather than having a massive bill to pay off. By spreading your payments out more evenly, you can reduce the impact on your budget. Opt for a bill smoothing system with your retailer if you want to avoid any undesired surprises in the mail.
How do I switch gas providers?
It’s simple really! Pick up your phone and dial us at Electricity Monster on 1300 232 848.
When should I switch gas providers?
Right when you feel you are paying to much for power. Power changes come into effect in every state, every year.
