Gas Industry Co has initiated the development of detailed arrangements relating to the Authorised Quantity (AQ) provisions of the Maui Pipeline Operating Code (MPOC). This addresses one part of the capacity allocation and congestion management issues covered by Gas Industry Co’s Gas Transmission Investment Programme (GTIP).

AQ  is a product outlined in the MPOC that would give shippers priority to have gas transported in the event of capacity constraints. The AQ product has yet to be ascribed detailed terms and conditions or a description of how it might work in practice.

Under the GTIP, Gas Industry Co continues to support industry-led ‘evolutionary convergence’ of the MPOC and the Vector Transmission Code.  However, the development of AQ arrangements form part of the ‘counterfactual design’ that Gas Industry Co is developing in parallel with that industry-led work.
