Gas is processed, to remove impurities and convert various products for sale.
3. Transmission and Distribution
High pressure transmission pipelines deliver gas either directly to large users or to lower pressure distribution pipelines.

The electricity supply chain in Australia can be summarised across the following five segments.
Power stations generate electricity.
Power is transported to consumers via networks. The first component is transmission lines, which carry high voltage electricity from the power station to distribution lines.
Transmission lines connect to distribution lines, which carry low voltage electricity to consumers.
Retailers purchase electricity in the wholesale market, deliver it through the transmission and distribution network, and sell it to consumers.
Electricity has a range of uses across many different commercial activities. From powering production facilities, to heating and lighting for onsite premises.
