19 July GTAC workshop

The presentation material for the 19 July 2017 workshop is available in the Related Documents section below. 

17 May GTAC workshop

At the 17 May GTAC workshop,  First Gas released material on three workstreams: access products, pricing, balancing and allocation. The material analysed detailed design choices that need to be made in drafting the new code, and provides emerging views on the best way to make those design choices. Draft code provisions for access products, pricing, and balancing and allocation have also been released so as to give stakeholders a sense of how the emerging views could be translated into code form. The paper is available below.

First Gas provided a 6-week period for any comments, during which they had one-on-one meetings with stakeholders to help ensure a good understanding of the emerging views and to get as much input as possible to the new code. Consistent with the work plan presented at the February workshop, First Gas intends to release a full draft of the new code in August 2017 and will schedule a further industry workshop around that time.

During the workshop, stakeholders requested that First Gas provide further information on the risks that have been identified with the procurement of IT associated with its new transmission access regime proposals. In response, First Gas developed an Information Paper - Initial Summary of GTAC IT Risks (available below).

The 17 May workshop also included a presentation by Concept Consulting on its paper Gas transmission access code -governance options.
