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. The pipeline was acquired by Jemena from Origin Energy in May 2017 for A$392 million.
