The bidirectional Roma to Brisbane Pipeline (RBP) is owned by APA Group and operated by its subsidiary APT Petroleum Pipelines. It is Australia's oldest natural gas pipeline and was designed and built with assistance from an American company, Southern Union Gas (SUG). As reported by The Australian Pipeliner in a 2016 retrospective, "From exploration and production through to gathering, transporting, distributing and selling at wholesale and retail levels, SUG played a role in the birth of the gas industry in Australia."
