West-East pipeline to benefit local market

The proposed west-east gas pipeline, seeking to bring volumes from Australia’s gas-rich west to the gas thirsty east, both benefits and is hurt by high Asian LNG prices, which Rystad Energy forecasts to increase post 2020.

Rystad’s analysis shows Western Australia gas would be competitive on the market in the eastern states if sent via pipeline, but the higher regional LNG price also increases the opportunity cost for current exporters to sell volumes domestically rather than selling to the export market.

However, not all of Western Australia’s gas producers have access to the export market, so the pipeline would provide much-needed long-term demand options for these producers.
