The Central West Pipeline transports gas from Marsden on the Moomba Sydney Pipeline mainline to Forbes, Parkes, Narromine and Dubbo in New South Wales.
On 19 January 2010, the National Competition Council (NCC) released its final decision and statement of reasons which approved the application of APT Pipelines (NSW) Pty Limited (APTNSW) for a light coverage determination. As the Central West Pipeline is now subject to light regulation, the current access arrangement ceases to apply.
While the Central West Pipeline will not be required to have its tariff and non-tariff terms and conditions of access approved by the AER, in the event of an access dispute the AER may make an access determination for the tariff and non-tariff conditions of access. APTNSW is also required to report annually certain information to the AER and publish its terms and conditions of its light regulation services, including tariffs, on its website.
