Following the six day Maui pipeline outage in October 2011, Gas Industry Co and the Critical Contingency Operator (CCO) set out to capture critical contingency management lessons arising from the event. The CCO produced post-event Incident and Performance Reports, and made 19 recommendations for improvements. Many of these related to processes that have been addressed directly by the CCO and transmission system owners under existing provisions in the Gas (Critical Contingency Management) Regulations 2008 (CCM Regulations). Other recommendations involved potential changes to the CCM Regulations, and were referred to Gas Industry Co for consideration.

Having consulted widely, including commissioning a report by Concept Consulting and taking account of submissions on that report, Gas Industry Co issued a Statement of Proposal (SoP) setting out proposed changes to the CCM Regulations.

The Statement of Proposal can be found below.

Also below are the NZIER Report - Value added associated with gas demand and the Lowe Environmental Impact Report - Review of Methods for and Impacts of Raw Milk Disposal, both of which are referred to in the Statement of Proposal.
