On 1 March 2018, First Gas presented its perspective on two recent events that are relevant to transmission system security and reliability:
- Refinery to Auckland pipeline (RAP) incident in September 2017. This presentation discussed First Gas’ role in responding to the fuel pipeline incident, and explore lessons for the gas transmission system in managing the risk of pipeline damage caused by third party activities.
- Pohokura production station outages on 8 February. As the largest gas producer, Pohokura can have a significant impact on gas transmission system operations. This presentation discussed the recent unplanned outage at Pohokura, and how the gas transmission system arrangements functioned during this period of stress.
