Stanwell has two gas-fired power stations, Swanbank E Power Station
near Ipswich and Mica Creek Power Station
near Mount Isa.
Gas is delivered to the 385 megawatt (MW) Swanbank E via the Roma to Brisbane Pipeline, while Mica Creek sources gas from Santos' south-west Queensland fields via the Carpentaria Gas Pipeline.
Ownership of Swanbank E and Mica Creek power stations was transferred to Stanwell from CS Energy on 1 July 2011 as a result of the Queensland Government owned generator restructure.
