The ACCC will provide regular information to the market over the next three years on the supply and pricing of gas under a broad reference from the Federal Government. The ACCC will also work with Dr Mike Vertigan to recommend longer term measures to increase transparency, facilitate competition, and support the gas market. This work will cover the full supply chain, including producers, transporters and retailers. In undertaking this work, the ACCC will liaise with energy agencies such as the Australian Energy Regulator, the Australian Energy Market Commission and the Australian Energy Market Operator. The ACCC will release public reports on the state of the gas market every six months, in addition to the more regular information. The first report is due to be released in October 2017.
