The government supports a gas fired recovery, and Australians can be proud of our gas industry. In 2019, Australia was the largest exporter of LNG, with an export value of $49 billion and more than 26,000 people directly employed in the LNG sector. New gas suppliers will help to drive down gas and electricity prices for Australian households and businesses. Gas is an essential feedstock and energy source for many of Australia's manufacturers and it provides hot water heating and a cooking source for millions of Australian households. Australia's competitive advantage has always been based on cheap energy, and gas will be central to our ongoing economic recovery.
