For markets other than the WA gas retail market, parties seeking to participate must first register in a registrable capacity as prescribed in the National Gas Rules (NGR).
AEMO recommends that new participants learn more about the market they will be participating in, and obtain expert advice prior to their participation.
The Gas Market Registration document provides information about registering for each market:
Fees and charges
NSW/ACT, QLD, and SA
AEMO has a broad range of functions and each is underpinned by a fee structure developed in consultation with stakeholders and in line with National Gas Rules. The fee structures detail how AEMO will calculate fees and who will be charged.
The current participant fee determination for AEMO’s gas markets is from 1 July 2015 to 30 June 2018. AEMO’s annual budget sets out the amounts that will be charged under these fee structures.

How to deregister
A registered participant in an AEMO-operated market can apply to be deregistered from any registrable capacity. This process is referred to as “revocation”.
Existing participants seeking to deregister must apply to AEMO for revocation of registration in the gas markets. The application should be on a formal letterhead, signed by a duly authorised company officer, and include:
- The participant’s full name and ABN.
- Relevant gas Company ID(s) (if applicable).
- Markets and capacity(ies)from which the participant wishes to deregister.
- The business reason(s) why the participant considers it is (or will be) no longer required to be registered in the relevant categories under the National Gas Rules.
- A preferred future deregistration effective date (AEMO cannot guarantee this date, but will try to meet the timeframe provided).
Depending on circumstances, AEMO may require additional information to verify the reasons for deregistration and confirm that any ongoing liability in the market will be met.
Upon deregistration, the status of the organisation is changed in the various system registers maintained by AEMO. Approximately six to nine months after the date of deregistration, when all revisions have been settled:
- Data sharing to and from the deregistered participant ID is removed.
- Access to AEMO’s market systems by the deregistered participant ID is revoked.
- Subsequently produced statements and reports are disabled.
When an organisation has ceased to be registered in any market and category(ies), it does not affect any prior obligation or liability of that organisation under the relevant market rules.
To re-register, the organisation must complete the registration process required for a new organisation.
