Origin teamed up with Kayte – aka Mrs Woog – from Woogsworld.com to embark on a road trip adventure to discover a little more about how energy actually gets to our homes.
The oil and gas Australia has are vital commodities across many sectors. Understanding this, Origin decided to show Kayte how gas production can supply electricity by taking a look the oil and gas industry. While oil production is important for Australia in its own right, we will specifically be looking at gas.
If you've just joined us, you might want to check out part 1 of our road trip Light bulb Moments where I found out more about understanding my bill.
On the first day of our road trip I got straight down to business and found out how I could cut my household energy use (who doesn’t want to know that, right?). Take a look at my second day on the road as I discover how energy is found under the ground - under the ocean at that!
In addition to the oil Australia has to offer, gas is a vital commodity. Be sure to watch the video above to get a better understanding about the process behind gas production from underground drilling. You will find out a “giant straw” and “Christmas tree” helps capitalize on the gas Australia has to offer. And remember, if you have enjoyed learning about the shale gas Australia produces, keep following Kayte’s road trip with Origin.
In part three of my journey, I’m off to see how the gas that comes out of the ground is processed and converted into the electricity that we all use at the flick of a switch.
