Overview

On 16 December 2016 the Australian Energy Regulator (AER) received an access arrangement proposal from AusNet Services, which owns and operates a gas distribution network in Victoria. The National Gas Law (NGL) and National Gas Rules (NGR) provide the regulatory framework governing gas networks. As with other covered pipelines, we regulate AusNet Services' reference tariffs for its network—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 AusNet's gas distribution network for the period 1 January 2018 to 31 December 2022.
