APA Victorian Transmission System - Access Arrangement 2018-22

Commencement date: 
3 January 2017
Regulatory period: 
1 January 2018 to 31 December 2022 (5 years)
AER reference: 


On 3 January 2017 the Australian Energy Regulator (AER) received an access arrangement proposal from APA VTS Australia (Operations) Pty Ltd (APA), for the gas transmission network in Victoria known as the Victorian Transmission System (VTS). The National Gas Law (NGL) and National Gas Rules (NGR) provide the regulatory framework governing gas networks. As with other covered pipelines, we regulate APA's reference tariffs for the VTS—and through these its revenue—under an approved access arrangement for its network.

On 30 November 2017 we published our final decision on the access arrangement that will apply to the VTS for the period 1 January 2018 to 31 December 2022.
