On 28 June 2019, the AER received an access arrangement proposal from Jemena Gas Networks (NSW) Ltd (JGN) for its NSW gas distribution network for the period from 1 July 2020 to 30 June 2025 (2020-25 period). The National Gas Law and National Gas Rules provide the regulatory framework governing gas networks. As with other covered pipelines, we regulate JGN's reference tariffs for its network - and through these its revenue - under an approved access arrangement for its network.
On 25 November 2019, we published our draft decision on the JGN access arrangement for the 2020-25 period.
On 9 January 2020, JGN submitted its access arrangement revised proposal for the 2020-25 period.
Interested stakeholders made submissions to us in response to both our draft decision and JGN's revised proposal by 17 February 2020. All submissions received are available on our website.
Following consultation with stakeholders, we decided to delay our 2020-25 network revenue final decisions due on 30 April 2020.
On 5 June 2020, we published our final decision on the JGN access arrangement for the 2020-25 period.
