Statistics in this chapter refer to all of those businesses engaged in gas supply activities in 2006-07 and 2007-08.
Estimates for total gas supply by all businesses are provided and these are separated into businesses that are engaged only in the supply of gas (but not electricity) and businesses that supply both gas and electricity. Importantly, for businesses that supply both gas and electricity, the estimates only include the gas supply component of business activity and exclude the electricity supply component(footnote 1) .
Estimates for 2007-08 are also provided for gas supply by activity. These activities include:
- Gas extraction
- Gas transport
- Gas distribution (including wholesaling and retailing)
Further information on these activities can be found in the Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification, 2006
(cat. no. 1292.0).
The commentary provided refers mainly to the tables in this chapter, and to the figures in Chapter 1. All value data are shown at current prices. The glossary provides definitions for terms used.
1 The electricity supply component of business activity is accounted for in Chapter 2: Electricity supply activities. <back
