Gas Supply Guarantee
In March 2017, Production Facility Operators and Pipeline Operators made commitments to the Commonwealth Government to make gas available to meet peak demand periods in the National Electricity Market. The Gas Supply Guarantee is a mechanism developed by the gas industry to facilitate the delivery of these commitments.
The Gas Supply Guarantee mechanism comprises new processes to identify, assess and confirm a potential gas supply shortfall as well as processes to communicate with industry and to call for a response to a shortfall.
The Guidelines document the mechanism’s industry-wide processes and were developed in consultation with industry.
The guidelines become effective on 1 December 2017.
