MPOC Change Request 14 July 2017 - Supplementary Documents

On 14 July 2017, Gas Industry Co received a request from First Gas Limited (First Gas) to make changes to the Maui Pipeline Operating Code (MPOC). The changes aim to facilitate transition to a new gas transmission access code (GTAC) when certain conditions are met.

At a recent industry workshop, First Gas informed Gas Industry Co and stakeholders that it proposed to issue further detail regarding the process for procuring and implementing a new IT system that will accompany a new GTAC. Gas Industry Co has now received this supplementary detail, and invites submissions on it. Submissions are invited by 5.00pm Thursday 7 September 2017.

The supplementary documents received from First Gas (available below) are:

  1. A letter proposing a change to the MPOC Transition Change Request (TCR) submitted to Gas Industry Co on 14 July 2017.
  2. An information paper providing stakeholders with further information on First Gas’s proposed process for procuring and implementing the IT system that will accompany the new GTAC.

First Gas has indicated that it does not propose a change to the Recommendation Request Form that formed part of the original TCR. Accordingly, Gas Industry Co will assess the TCR with reference to the form and the revised drafting following a brief period of industry consultation. We request that submissions focus only on the supplementary detail and clearly identify the extent to which it affects that stakeholder’s original submission on the TCR.

In order to allow adequate time for stakeholders and Gas Industry Co to consider the revised drafting, it is necessary to amend the timetable for consideration of the TCR.

The new timetable is as follows:
