Dampier Bunbury Pipeline
Contributing to state development and energy needs
DBP continued with its program of expanding the capacity of the Dampier Bunbury Pipeline to meet increased
demand and to maintain a history of reliable natural gas supply to customers using
In April 2010 DBP announced the practical completion of its third major expansion
of the pipeline over the last five years.
Consistent with prior expansion projects undertaken since 2005, the Stage 5B expansion
project has also created significant regional development opportunities for Western
Australia, including employment and supporting economic growth. Many major industrial
companies rely on the pipeline to supply their energy needs, either directly or
through electricity generated by gas-fired power stations. These users are fuelling
the state’s economic growth. Without a reliable supply of natural gas this economic
growth would not be possible.
