LIP Quarterly Update - March 2024

Read Andrew Cooke’s latest update for the Hastings community.

It’s been a busy start to the year with works on our Hastings Generation Project progressing steadily and on track for completion in the later half of 2024. The generators will essentially help to reduce the need for flaring whilst ensuring we continue to power Victorian homes and maintain our reliable supply of natural gas across the east coast of Australia.

Looking back, 2023 was a great year of forging new relationships with the Hastings and Mornington Peninsula community as I embraced my role as Long Island Point Plant Manager. I have had the privilege of attending many community events and learning more about the great work organisations surrounding our operations continue to undertake in helping to make our community an even better place to live in. It has been a great experience so far and I look forward to continuing to strengthen our engagement this year.

Late last year, the team participated in an emergency response drill that was conducted in collaboration with district commanders from the Country Fire Authority and other regulatory bodies. It was a great opportunity for us to test our emergency response skills and participate in an exercise where we could learn from and share with one another and improve on our emergency response preparedness.

2024 is an exciting year for our operations and our plant at LIP as we deliver on a number of projects and improvements essential in playing our part in the delivery of a reliable supply of natural gas across the east coast of Australia. We are looking forward to the opportunity to continue working with our community to build on existing relationships whilst also developing new ones.

As always, if you have any questions about our operations, please feel free to reach me at
