The Natural Gas Network in Western Australia
Gas is a fantastic source of energy – for homes, businesses and industry.
We look after Western Australia’s largest reticulated gas network, with more than 14,000km of pipeline serving the Perth metropolitan area and regional centres including Geraldton, Kalgoorlie, Bunbury and Albany – and many towns and centres in between.
Our network mostly transports natural gas to your home, although in Albany the network operates slightly differently, delivering liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) to homes and businesses.
As Perth continues to grow and develop, we are focused on expanding the network to meet that growth, as well as maintaining existing infrastructure to ensure safe and efficient supply for years to come.
If you’re interested in enjoying the benefits of gas at your home or business then you’ll need to talk to a gas retailer to set up an account. No matter what your needs there are a range of retailers that can assist.
The Economic Regulatory Authority website has a full and current list of natural gas retailers.

ATCO is focused on growing the Western Australian natural gas network, for Western Australians. Currently there is over $13+ million of in-ground network expansion underway.
ATCO continues to expand its gas network to support the growth of Western Australia. Our key growth areas within the metropolitan area reflect the growth areas of Perth and its surrounding suburbs. These include:
- Yanchep/Two Rocks 26km
- Yunderup 8km
- Byford 6.7km
- Ellenbrook spur line 2.7km
ATCO has invested in providing more gas resources in Western Australia by:
Helping developers save
A case-by-case assessment is made for all new land developments, assisting developers with their plans so home buyers will have access to natural gas.
Supporting residential and industrial growth
Providing the gas pipelines to subdivisions within business developments so that homebuyers have access to natural gas and all the benefits natural gas provides.
Connecting more homes and businesses
Actively growing the reticulated gas network and network connections, allowing more WA residents the ability to use natural gas.
With continued strong growth rates in Western Australia and a continued urban sprawl, ATCO Gas is committed to supplying natural gas for the broader community.
