On 11 September 2017, First Gas released a revised draft of the Gas Transmission Access Code (GTAC) following engagement and feedback on the complete draft released in August. First Gas presented the revised draft GTAC at a workshop on 15 September, and key aspects of it were considered at Focus Sessions held on 21 and 28 September. Mark-ups and submissions on the draft GTAC (and associated) were invited by Monday, 9 October 2017. Submissions on the draft GTAC are available below.

The following documents are available below:

First Gas team members will also be available to meet with stakeholders ahead of the due date for mark-ups and submissions, and is considering whether to provide for a round of cross-submissions after mark-ups and submissions are received.

The mark-ups and submissions received on the revised draft GTAC will be used to inform the final version of the GTAC that First Gas will submit to the Gas Industry Co on 3 November 2017. Gas Industry Co’s proposed approach to assessing the GTAC is summarised here. This will provide stakeholders with a further opportunity to address any issues raised in the process of developing the GTAC that have not been resolved.

At the 15 September 2017 GTAC workshop, several stakeholders requested a further opportunity to mark-up the draft GTAC. First Gas has reflected on the GTAC development process, and has provided a revised engagement approach for the draft GTAC found below, with changes from the previous process highlighted in red. As noted in the revised engagement approach for the draft GTAC, First Gas will also be holding two focused session over the coming weeks.
