Origin Energy

We're the leading Australian integrated energy company supplying electricity to 4.2 million customers and developing and producing natural gas - a cleaner form of energy for customers in Australia and beyond. Origin also aspires to be the number one renewables company in Australia, by empowering our customers to reduce their carbon footprint through wind, solar and storage technology.

Here’s a snapshot of some key moments that mark major achievements in our growth since our formation in 2000.


The $24.7 billion Australia Pacific LNG project commenced production in late 2015, with the first cargo of liquefied natural gas (LNG) shipped on Saturday, 9 January 2016. 


We divested our 53.09 per cent shareholding of Contact Energy Ltd in New Zealand. We will continue to operate oil and gas projects and hold petroleum exploration interests in the nation.


We complete construction of the Australia Pacific LNG Project main gas transmission pipeline, linking the gas fields in Queensland with the LNG facility on Curtis Island.

We listened to our customers and to better meet their needs, we remove exit fees from residential electricity and natural gas plans, extend our call center hours and introduce more flexible payment options.
