Otway Pipeline Safety Awareness


Beach Energy owns and operates the Halladale Black Watch and Speculant Pipeline (PL006009) and the Otway Raw Gas Pipeline (PL250). These buried high-pressure natural gas pipelines are located onshore in the Otway Basin, supplying gas to Victorian households and businesses.

Australia Standards AS 2885.3 requires Beach to conduct a Pipeline Safety Awareness Campaign with landholders who have Beach assets located on their property. The following materials assist engagement on pipeline safety and awareness, and approval required for landholders who wish to conduct authorised works on or near the pipeline.
