Minister of Energy - Recommendation on Critical Contingency Amendments to Gas Compliance Regulations 18/12/2008

Date Published: June 2008

 

Gas Industry Co is recommending regulations providing for the effective management of critical gas contingencies, called the Gas Governance (Critical Contingency Management) Regulations. The proposed regulations include mandatory processes for the management of critical contingencies, including compliance with curtailment instructions. An effective compliance regime is crucial to ensuring that the proposed regulations achieve their purpose. In a statement of proposal on critical contingency management arrangements issued in August 2007, Gas Industry Co proposed that the existing compliance regulations be amended to apply to the proposed contingency management regulations. This paper sets out the proposed amendments.
