, chairman of the regulator, said concerns had been raised in the industry about APA’s dominance in gas transmission, but a takeover wouldn’t alter that in a material way. APA operates more than 9,000 miles of gas pipelines in Australia that connect to 1.3 million homes and businesses, and owns or has interests in gas-storage facilities, gas-fired power stations and wind farms.

The undertaking addressed the regulator's concerns about the loss of competition in Western Australia's gas pipeline development market, it said.
