Locating Gas Piping
Gas Piping – The gas distribution network provides energy for the growing demand of customers across Australia.This includes gas piping for low pressure up to 7 kPa, medium pressure over 7 kPa and up to 210 kPa and high pressure over 210 kPa to service the many industries and properties around the metropolitan, regional and rural areas.
Some of the construction materials used in the gas network include polyethylene, nylon and coated or cathodically protected steel.
Pipe size, location and depth vary with service required for location and date of installation, such as older installation will more likely be steel or old cast iron pipes.
