The DomGas Alliance is a member-driven industry body representing natural gas users, infrastructure investors and producers in Western Australia.
The Alliance seeks to ensure a reliable, affordable and diverse supply of natural gas for industry and households in Western Australia. It was formed in 2006 in response to a serious shortage of gas supply for new developments in WA.
Members include Alcoa of Australia, Fortescue Metals Group and Yara.
The Alliance works closely with State and Federal Governments and other industry stakeholders to promote initiatives and debate on domestic gas supply issues.
