The Darling Downs Pipeline network (DDPN) consists of three interconnected gas transmission pipelines in the Darling Downs region in South-East Queensland that operate as a single pipeline network. The DDPN spans 292km in length and transports gas from the gas fields in South-East Queensland to the Wallumbilla gas hub, the 630MW Darling Downs Power Station, and to APLNG’s export pipeline.[2] The pipeline was acquired by Jemena from Origin Energy in May 2017 for A$392 million.[3]
