In NSW all the natural gas networks are owned and operated by private organisations and have been developed and expanded by these private companies since the 1850s.

For a variety of historical, geographic and environmental reasons, the network has not been run past every house or building and not all premises are able to be easily connected to the gas network.

The networks operating areas can be viewed in this map:
