Down at the gas plant - pipes and gloves!
The gas arrives via pipelines – and I arrived layered in even more warm clothing. This place was bone numbingly cold, even on a beautiful sunny day.
Josh, the Operations Field Manager, showed me around the natural gas plant. He was a very patient man and wasn’t fazed by my rapid-fire of questions. He had all the answers and explained everything in layperson’s terms. He’s a straightshooter.
The towers were impressive, much larger than I expected, and everything was spotless. Josh explained how these large towers filter the gas into specific products. I saw exactly where the gas in your BBQ tank comes from – and the gas that powers your stovetop.
The main thing I learnt at Otway Gas Plant was that the plant acts like a big filtration system (oh, and that the employees love a laugh!)
