APT Petroleum Pipelines Pty Limited (APTPPL) owns and operates the Roma to Brisbane Pipeline (RBP). The National Gas Law (NGL) and National Gas Rules (NGR) provide the regulatory framework governing gas networks. As with other covered pipelines, we regulate APTPPL's reference tariffs and through this its revenue under an approved access arrangement.
APTPPL is required to submit for its RBP a gas access arrangement proposal, for the period starting 1 July 2022 to 30 June 2027 (2022-27), to the AER on 1 July 2021. Before doing so, the NGR require service providers to submit a reference service proposal, which describes all the pipeline services and reference services a service provider intends to offer its customers.
On 30 June 2020, APTPPL submitted its reference service proposal in respect of its RBP. We published the proposal but did not receive any stakeholder submissions.
On 27 November 2020, we published our final decision on APTPPL's reference service proposal in respect of its RBP.
The indicative timetable outlines the key milestones in the decision making process.
