The bidirectional Roma to Brisbane Pipeline (RBP) is owned by APA Group and operated by its subsidiary APT Petroleum Pipelines.[2] It is Australia's oldest natural gas pipeline and was designed and built with assistance from an American company, Southern Union Gas (SUG).[3] 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."[3]
