Before you dig, know what's below.



Lodge an enquiry by visiting Before You Dig Australia (BYDA) and follow the prompts.
This is a free pre-excavation referral service.
It is a requirement of all work over and near Jemena’s assets that a BYDA enquiry be undertaken.



I have an easement registered on my property title – what does this mean?

An easement is a form of tenure that is acquired by Jemena to provide protection to its gas assets. Easements give Jemena the right to use the land for operating its assets and include mandatory requirements for any landholder and third party undertaking work on, over or near the easement. Encroachment into an easement may impact the integrity of the pipeline and increase the risk to the safety of our surrounding community. 

If you are unsure of the easement terms of an asset traversing your property please contact the Lands Team at
