The AEMC has initiated a rule change request from the COAG Energy Council to undertake a range of improvements to the Natural Gas Services Bulletin Board. This request will be fast-tracked under provisions in the National Gas Law and a draft determination will be published within five weeks.
The Bulletin Board, which is managed by the Australian Energy Market Operator, provides up-to-date gas system and market information to help participants make more informed decisions about trading, investing in, or using gas. The rule change request proposes to increase the amount and frequency of data reported on the Bulletin Board, along with greater data accuracy requirements and a stronger compliance framework.
Stakeholders will have the opportunity to make submissions on the draft determination which is due to be published by 18 July 2017.
