Pipeline industry supports peak gas supply guarantee

gas transmission pipelineThe pipeline industry has today agreed to support the peak energy demand gas supply guarantee to ensure gas is able to flow to where it is needed, when it is needed, APGA Chief Executive Cheryl Cartwright said.

Pipeline representatives met Federal Cabinet’s Energy Policy Committee to assist the government to ensure electricity generators have the gas they have been guaranteed by gas producers at times of peak demand on the east coast electricity network.

“The gas transmission sector has an excellent track record of delivering investment and service innovation to ensure gas is delivered when and where it is needed,” Ms Cartwright said.

“This has happened during the significant changes in gas flows experienced as exports have begun from Queensland.

“We have also assured Ministers the industry would continue to work with Dr Vertigan and his Gas Market Reform Group on developing and implementing reforms to markets where gas transportation is traded. These reforms will increase transparency, competition and create incentive to trade in those markets.”
