Member for Calare Andrew Gee issued an update on Sunday morning stating Jemena is looking at re-lighting Bathurst on Sunday too - but it could be another day before they start.
For residents of Lithgow, there is gas on the way. Mr Gee said a 42-tonne tank is arriving in Lithgow on Tuesday. It will be commissioned by Friday.
"It will take a couple of days after that to start reconnections. The gas will be trucked in from Dandenong, vaporised, put into the tank and then injected into the system from Friday.
"It will be progressively increased. Volumes and capacity are still to be worked out. Vulnerable customers will have priority.
MORE NEWS ON THE GAS OUTAGE:
For residents of Oberon and Lithgow, Mr Gee said the temporary pipe to get gas across the Macquarie River at the site of the rupture arrives from Brisbane tomorrow.
"It will take several days to commission and get gas flowing," he said in the statement.
DO YOU NEED ASSISTANCE?
13 77 88 is the Hotline for vulnerable community members seeking assistance and information. Available from midday.
Don't try and turn off the valves yourself. Wait for assistance which will come and certify it's been done correctly and made safe.
NEED A HOT SHOWER?
Bathurst - Shower facilities are now available at Hereford St sporting facilities between 7am and 7pm at the St Pat's Rugby League ground and the Bulldogs Rugby Union grounds on Hereford Street.
