Gas Transmission Access: SCOP2 - Analysis of Submissions Workshop
In November 2016, First Gas consulted on the paper Gas Transmission Access: Single Code Options Paper (SCOP2). Thirteen submissions were received and the Analysis of Submissions are available here.
Gas Industry Co and First Gas are co-leading the development of a single new gas transmission access code. As part of that process, First Gas issued SCOP2, building on Gas Industry Co’s September 2016 paper Gas Transmission Access: Single Code Options Paper Part 1 (SCOP1).
The purpose of SCOP2 was to explore the options for shaping a single new Gas Transmission Access Code to replace the Maui Pipeline Operating Code (MPOC) and the Vector Transmission Code (VTC). SCOP2 focused on decisions that are important to establishing the direction for the new code and the IT system to implement it.
The SCOP2 Analysis of Submissions includes Gas Industry Co’s comments on those submissions and on the process forward. Submissions show a high level of stakeholder engagement and strong support for the main objective; to enable the use of gas through the transmission system.
In mid-February, First Gas will propose a set of directions and next steps for the new code development process, building on submitter views. A workshop to discuss SCOP2 submissions, the proposed directions, and next steps will be held at Gas industry Co on Tuesday 28 February.
Stakeholders are encouraged to register and attend. Details of the workshop are:
