Today the AEMC commenced work on a gas market scoping study. This project was initiated by the AEMC in response to changes underway in Australia’s eastern gas markets due to the emerging liquefied natural gas export industry, and feedback from stakeholders through the strategic priorities review.

The purpose of the scoping study is to provide the AEMC with an overview of developments in the gas market and to identify areas of potential improvement in the market and regulatory arrangements for the downstream gas sector that may benefit from future market development work.

We expect to commence stakeholder consultation for this project in late May/early June. Please monitor the AEMC website and mailing list updates for further information.
