Australian Gas Networks (AGN) owns and operates the gas distribution network in South Australia. The National Gas Law (NGL) and National Gas Rules (NGR) provide the regulatory framework governing gas networks. As with other covered pipelines, we regulate AGN's reference tariffs—and through this its revenue—under an approved access arrangement.
AGN is required to submit its gas access arrangement for the period 1 July 2021 to 30 June 2026 to the AER for approval on 1 July 2020. Before doing so, the NGR require service providers to submit a reference service proposal, which describes all the pipeline services and reference services it intends to offer its customers. AGN submitted its reference service proposal to us on 27 June 2019.
Interested parties were invited to make a submission on Australian Gas Networks’ reference service proposal by close of business on 2 August 2019.
On 25 November 2019 the AER approved the reference service proposal submitted by AGN SA. Details are set out in the AER final decision paper.
An indicative timetable for the gas access arrangement review is set out in the initiation milestone web page.
