Today, the AEMC published a draft rule determination and draft rule for the pipeline operator cost recovery processes rule change request submitted by the Australian Energy Regulator (AER).

The Commission is proposing to make a more preferable rule which incorporates several of the changes proposed in the AER’s rule change request. It also makes a number of additional amendments to further promote efficiency in the operation and use of the pipeline operator cost recovery provisions in the national gas rules (NGR).

Stakeholders are invited to make submissions in response to the draft rule determination, including the draft (more preferable) rule, by Thursday 16 May 2013.
