Review of Gas Critical Contingency Management: Post Maui Pipeline Outage

Date Published: 08 June 2012

Gas Industry Co engaged Concept Consulting Group to review the effectiveness of the critical contingency management processes and governance arrangements during the Maui outage.

Their discussion paper, 'Review of Gas Critical Contingency Management: Post Maui Pipeline Outage' and subsequent submissions, can be accessed below.

Gas Industry Co then analysed the submissions received on the Concept Consulting Group discussion paper, 'Review of Gas Critical Contingency Management: Post Maui Pipeline Outage', which can be found below in Related Documents.

While submitters supported most of the recommendations in the Review Report, the Submissions Analysis noted that there was more work to be done in the areas of:

  • Defining which, if any, customer categories would qualify for Essential Service Provider status beyond those providing critical care services,
  • Ensuring that sufficient incentives exist for gas users to make decisions, and any corresponding investment, to support fit-for-purpose resilience against gas outages,
  • Determining whether the regional/non-regional distinction continues to be needed and, if so, providing for clarification and notification in the CCM Regulations,
  • Ensuring that arrangements are in place (whether by way of agreement or regulation) so as to ensure that communications are timely and effective,
  • Strengthening the compliance arrangements so as to ensure the highest levels of compliance with curtailment directed by the Critical Contingency Operator.

Gas Industry Co prepared a Statement of Proposal, which is the formal description of proposed amendments to the CCM Regulations. It can be viewed under Statement of Proposal.
